The basket that sits beside my chair with my hand work was getting empty. Only one project left. I can't always get upstairs to prep a piece of applique or trace an embroidery design during the week. No one was looking at the house today so it was the perfect time to get a few things ready to stitch.

First I got the binding sewn on one of the wallhangings.

And the binding sewn onto the second one. Now both are ready to have them stitched in place.

I got my mini quilt all ready to baste and then hand quilt.

It is now in the basket with the tools needed to mark it.

I need 11 circles to applique on the current Country Cousin block. The fabric is cut and I can now baste it around my Perfect Circles to get them ready to stitch.

Looks like I have enough for the upcoming week. It will be interesting to see just how much gets done.
