Sitting quietly lately, I have completed the quilting on this little quilt. I am making progress on my UFO's, doing this kind of stuff. This quilt reminds me of my mother, who had the basket below for as long as I can remember.
She kept clothes pins in it, and so I do too, as well as my mismatched socks, waiting for the lost sock mate to show up!! I have a couple of her darning eggs in there. My mom always hung out all the clothes to dry, and there was a hook on the line to hook this basket onto. It was old 40 years ago, and I don't know how old it really is, but it is quite sturdy and I just love it.
