Here's what's been getting worked on recently. I have only one more basket to sew on to the background. I tried putting the handle on and sewing one together. Hum, I'm going to need to make sure the handle is evenly rounded. But I am happy that the whole idea actually works. I'd like to get all the handles done and blocks made this week.
I've been working on the row from Rose Patch Creations. I didn't buy the kit, only a piece of the fabric with the winter scene on it. Kim had a much better blue than mine. Mine seems a bit too grey. But it does have some wonderful snowflakes on it. And, I am happy to use a bit of fabric I've had for many years! It still needs a border of the blue and then it will be done.
I joined Kay at Quilter's Corner to attend an Anita Gooddesign session. They are running a monthly session where you make a couple of projects and get the designs on a disk with instructions. I was really taken with this little bear done on paper. Hum, maybe I could do this for my Christmas cards this year. Of course, I would need to start NOW to do it. And, I might change how they chose to do it. There was a second design on the disk that was very nice but would be a lot less time consuming. He would also look good on a sweatshirt for Sophie, Natalie or Ellie. Well, he might be too big for anything for Ellie yet.
Surprisingly, I did get something done on most of my goals but definitely not all of them. This week I hope to stay focused on my quilting. Well, at least most of the week.
