I spent a couple days fiddling around and not getting much done, but I did do a little sewing that might turn into something some time down the road. Do you have days like that? Where you just can't get settled down and decide what to work on? One problem is that I need to get busy with the scrappy border on the barn quilt and I'm just putting that off - but will probably get serious on it next week. (I'm also putting off working on taxes).
Yesterday, I decided I would finish the little quilt that I started for me. I made one like this for a customer and had made some blocks for one for me at the same time when we were in Florida for Christmas. So I decided to get it put together and got this far. Now I just need to quilt and bind it. This is Meg's 4-patch Doll Quilt from Jo Morton's book, "Jo's Little Favorites." There are so many adorable quilts in that book.
I also have been working on the basket blocks and this one is finished now. It's block #9. I machine appliquéd with a button hole stitch and hand embroidered the words and letters. I have the other 4 blocks set aside to do any hand embroidery on them. Some of them call for buttons and bows to be added after quilting it. So, I will decide then whether or not I add those items. I don't think I'll add all of them.
DH and I are going on a short trip this weekend to Ocean Shores, Washington, and will be meeting his brother & SIL there. Should be fun! Have a nice weekend!
