I was lucky this week to receive twice the same award! Once from Marcie and once from Pamina. How nice! Thank you very much,
I am very honored and will try to keep up with the expectations during the whole year.

I enjoy reading a lot of blogs and I do get inspiration from a lot of them too and so I will give the award to some new to me blogs and to some "classical" (to me!).

I haven´t been doing much on the quilting side this week. (the laundry baskets were overflowing after the holidays!) and work started again.

I am still hand-quilting on my basket quilt. I plan to finish that one at least this year!

I finished the socks for my uncle. As you can see they are a bit too big for me!
And I finished the cushion cover for my dear sis (sorry no picture).

Next Thursday I will go to our monthly meeting where I will meet Bea (you know the one with the hard-to-resist stitchery BOM), so if you want me to hug her for you, or scold her for tempting you to yet another project, let me know!

I wish you all a very nice week-end!

Love your basket quilt. I have a basket Ufo. A project I started with Bonnie. I only have to sew a few rows together and the top is finished. You inspire me Gwen!

Congratulations on your award(s). I think it is wonderful that you are handquilting the basket quilt. I always mean to hand quilt something, but I'm waiting for a very special quilt to come along. Your basket quilt is a special quilt and well deserving of hand quilting.

Hello from sunny california!!

It's your dear sister. Not much on the news front except that I got you some cute ribbons from Target for only one dollar. Went for a lovely run by the water with all these fit bodies around, hard job.

Speak to you soon

I love making basket blocks like yours. What size are they? I use Alex Anderson's method to make 4 1/2" blocks.
