A little bit of hand quilting ...

Easter basket

Its been a couple of years since I've done one of these but a few flowers springing into life really speak of the new life given at Easter.

It has some 'happy day' labels that have William Morris prints on the front.

Scrap t shirt rug

Finished and in its new home. The purple matches the room nicely.  I think it has 24 rows.  I have an 'order' for a blue and green one. Time to chop up more shirts.

First stripe done

I've threaded and started, 30 pegs wide on narrow. It's a yard long, the next twenty odd bags with stripes in are all ready to go.

Finish it February??

Only a few rows off my goal, but its March. What to do? Persevere, Made it March instead :)
