Sunday Baskets and a Mini Quilt

Aren't Sunday's the best...nice and quiet, relaxing, time to get a little sewing done before church and then pleanty of time to work on ufo's after church. Here's what I did today......


I used the pattern from Pink Penguin to make these little beauties. Easy to follow directions and quick to make. I have a feeling that there are a lot more of these in my future.


As mentioned in an earlier post, I participated in the Booty Miniature Quilt Swap. I previewed the fabrics that I used and my partner should have gotten her package yesterday, or by tomorrow at the latest, so I guess it's OK to show you what I made for her...


I got the idea for this mini from a Fon's and Porter quilt that I saw in a recent issue of their magazine.

I had dinner outside this evening. I noticed that there's a little orange and red starting to show up on the mountains. I guess Fall is truly on the way. Y-I-P-E-E!!! I love the Fall, although they do promise 5-10 degrees warmer than usual for the next few days.


I hope that you all have a GREAT week;)




ENJOY!!!

You have been so busy and your baskets look great all lined up on the fence. Am I the only blogger not to have made one yet I wonder.......

Hi Karen! Thanks so much for you comment - you are always so kind!!

Now, you know I love your baskets!!! They are rather addictive aren't they?!! I also love all your flower photos. So beautiful. Maybe next year will be my flower year. Maybe:) I also love the pillow you and your granddaughter made - so sweet!!

By the way I"ve always wanted to make a flower like that one too.

Let me have your email address. It didn't come through on your post to my blog. I'm so excited to have you join us. I'll get you more information when I know how many sign up. But I think there will be 2 groups. And if someone wants to join both groups, they are welcome to if they are that ambitious! I might join both. But I'm crazy!
