Before Christmas I went to my favorite LQS to spend my gift certificate when I saw a BOM program on the wall that I really liked. It came in Red or Blue. I had always wanted to join in on something at this shop which specializes in reproduction fabrics, but never have. I thought, maybe I should do it this time - as I had resisted for years. I had a hard time making the decision, but I decided to join in. Am I nuts? I selected the blue one. The pattern is below and comes with a template for the baskets. Each month I will receive a package with fabric for 12 baskets to be hand appliquéd! Yikes! I received the first month at the shop and there was enough fabric for 12 blocks, six background fabrics and 6 blue fabrics for the baskets, so I will have 12 blocks with 2 from each fabric.

I just received this book as a Christmas gift from my DS#3/DIL and am already enjoying it. I love Marie Bostwick's Cobbled Court series.
I received this mug rug from Karen when we met for lunch a week ago. We had such a good visit!
We left Florida and are now in Alabama visiting our 3rd son and family. Jonah (4) and Eli (2) are such precious little boys!
