Judy at Patchwork Times has Design Wall Monday....... A great way to see what is going on in the world with other stitchers. Judy also has a special Memorial Day offer that you need to check. She is posting a pattern just the right size for QOV. If you make the quilt and mail it to her she will finish it and send it on its way.

This weekend I started my Mini Irish Chain. I only got one row done but other things did need attention first.

I got out my redwork piece from the First Friday Freebie hosted by Kaaren at The Painted Quilt. Karen used her piece on a notebook cover. I have something else in mind.

Several years ago I found several of these baskets. They are just the thing to put all the pieces of a project into to take downstairs to work on. It keeps everything together and if I need to prep more things I just take the basket back up stairs. Keeps me from dropping little pieces of applique.

I am making a quilted piece to put into the bottom of the basket..................

Then making a cover to put over the project in the basket.

It was a productive weekend even though I only got to play in the studio for a few hours.

    Hi Susan... You are too quick... What a great job on the redwork... I love the mini Irish Chain... It looks so small... :)

  2. Love the basket. You get so much done!!!

  3. Oh that basket is going to look lovely. Great way to use Kaaren's design.
    Like your color choice for the Irish Chain. I am busy attaching yo-yo's to mine :)

  4. love your basket idea for Kaarens stitchery. I only have mine 1/2 way done and think I will just pack it to take on vacation in a few weeks! (and after vacation I will probably unpack it and work on it....)

  5. You got a lot done! I love the basket idea.


Thank you for your comment.......
