I am working on some basket stitcheries for a quilt. These are different basket patterns than the "Baskets of Life" quilt I showed here. I am using basket patterns from two different sources. Not all of the blocks will be the same size but most will. And I don't know if they will all go into one quilt. I am going to play with the setting when the time comes. I have at least fifteen patterns to select from and I think I have some more smaller ones I can choose from. It is hard to photograph the stitcheries so that the design shows well. The basket patterns are all E-Patterns which means you select the designs, pay, and then they are e-mailed to you for printing out.
The block on the left is called "Basket O'Tansy" and is from Chestnut Junction. I don't know what Tansy is but I like that name. The block on the right is "Valentine Basket" and is from Primitive Stitches.
The basket on the left is "Basket O'Carrots" from Chestnut Junction. The block on the right is "Love Basket" from Primitive Stitches. I am enjoying doing the embroidery on the blocks. I have another one started with crows.
The pin box is a gift from a good friend. Good friend, I want you to know how much I appreciate you. It reminds me of a box my mother used for her pins. Not the same shape or design as hers but a reminder none the less.
That's it for today. I need to ponder on what projects I want to work on for May and get those goals set. Come back soon.
