Baskets, Baskets, Baskets

Today I thought I would lay out the baskets blocks that I have completed so far.  I think I counted 45 finished, and 10 basted and ready to stitch.  A very long way from the finish line.  I believe there are 300 baskets in the quilt I am making.  It is from the book, "When the Cold Wind Blows".  I posted about it two or so years ago when I started this quilt.  If I don't pick up my pace a little I will be working on this quilt for many years to come!!  Not that its a bad thing, its always nice to have something to pick up and work on.  

Hope the Sun is Shining in your neck of the woods :)

Happy Stitching,

Fall Table Topper

Fall Table topper from Judy Martins book that I blogged about a short while ago.  I am hoping to take it to the quilters tomorrow, should have it bound and on my table just in time for Fall :)  Its quite long so I had my daughter hold it up for me, try not to look at the background!

Do you have a fall project you are working on?

Happy Stitching,

Happy Birthday

Today would have been my moms 74th Birthday.  She loved yellow roses, so I went to the local garden centre and bought a yellow rose bush and planted it in one of my flower beds in my back yard.  She also loved Inukshuks, so on our family camping trip to Mt. Kidd this year, my sister and I collected the perfect rocks.

So here is my little tribute to my mom.  I think she would have loved it :)

Not a day passes without her in my thoughts.
