RSC blue baskets.

This month is all about baskets! I have 7 baskets all hand appliquéd down onto their dotted backgrounds.

I need to cut out some more backgrounds and finish prepping more baskets for the rest of the month. I really should go do that so I can stitch them while resting on the couch and watching the British Baking Show on Netflix this afternoon.

We went fishing this morning with the kids and another family from boy scouts...almost 3 hours in the hot this morning. There was a horrendous thunderstorm and downpour on the way home around 11AM.... lets just say when we stopped at Zaxby's we ordered our food to take home... but ended up staying in to eat as it was POURING outside. They even lost power for a good 15-20 seconds right before our food came up. It did let up a bit after a while so we could get to the car and head home.



Right now - I think there are 3 people sleeping in my nice quiet house. I should be in the sewing room.... but some down time with hand stitching will happen instead.

Linking up to the RSC Challenge. Head on over and take a look.

  3. Such pretty blue baskets! They look fun to stitch. It looks like you had fun fishing, but sounds like it wore everyone out!

  10. I love your baskets!!! Are they all one piece, or is the handle separate? Do you know where I could get the basket pattern? Pretty please?
