Good morning lovely people 🙂
Last week I went along to my monthly quilter’s group, it’s still quite new to me and I’m still getting to know people but I enjoyed meeting everyone again and I hope I’m starting to put names to faces – the good news is that all the group wear name badges so newcomers can quickly learn who everyone is which is really helpful.
This month we had a visitor in from a local quilt shop and she talked us through how to make a bread basket. She’d kindly made up kits for us so all we had to do was sew 🙂
This is my creation,
and I was pleased with the way it turned out to say that it was ALL hand stitched! Definitely a case of 15 minutes by machine or 2 hours plus by hand!
If you want to make one for yourself then you can find instructions for something very similar at Blissful Sewing.
I wasn’t quite sure what I’d use it for as mine has cardboard inside it so it can’t be washed, I thought about it holding my paper napkins but it’s too small (I do quite like that idea and I may have to make another the correct size for them 🙂 ) Then I thought of the perfect job for it which is to collect all my little threads and snippets of fabric when I’m sewing – a thread basket!
I’m going to get on with my geese picture now, hopefully I shall have something to show you by Thursday 😉
Until next time,
