A little bit of everything!!
Can you imagine a friend, one that makes your paper pieced blocks; knowing that you are just not good at it? Lyn, my Australian long-time friend, made these for me, for the Splendid Sampler!!! Lyn, I am honored to feature them in my quilt!!! Love, love!! and thank you so very much!!
I have been in a basket making mood!! This is a small one for my tubes of hand cream and miscellaneous, for the bathroom. I got a stabilizer from Joann's which really helped make the basket have some shape. Hurrah!!
Are you doing Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt?? Here is my start!! They are supposed to be neutral scrappy four patches...but hey, you know I have to change it up, LOL!! So, I made these, and think they will work just fine too!!
Another basket...this one without the stabilizer. Not as good, but I did put handles on this one...
And last, but not least!! Snowmen have shown up at my house!! They must think Christmas is coming!!!
I always kind of panic around Christmas, on a more serious note...will everyone be happy and fulfilled and the house be just right and the food be perfect and the gifts sublime???
But really? It is the time we celebrate Jesus' birthday, and I think that is the most important thing to for me to focus on! So I am taking a deep breath and saying a small grateful prayer!
