Because Idle Hands Cause My Mouth to Flap

11 more baskets in all their finished glory!

An abandoned basket block with about 25 more behind it all prepped & ready to go.....
We have a young couple with 4 children living with us for about 2 weeks until they can move into their new rental house.  This means no matter how much I really, really want to be in my sewing room, it's not gonna happen any time soon.  Sooooo, out comes this project I've been peck, peck, pecking away at for 2 years in November.  After the green blocks come the brown and black baskets and THEN, the fleur de lis border triangles.  Why oh why do I do this to myself?  hehe  Exactly for times like this.  (Not to mention for when my mother-in-law comes to visit.)


  1. I have 87 of those little baskets made. I still wonder why this quilt has had so much appeal to so many of us. I think you have to give in and accept that not much other sewing is going to happen, sadly.

  2. Say Audrey, Did you know you are a "No-reply" blogger? Just wondering.

  3. no, sorry. i didn't realize i was a no-reply blogger. i guess i better get that figured out.:) thanx for letting me know and it's sweet to know other people out there are determined to work on that quilt too.


I love getting comments and always try to respond via email. If you aren't getting replies back from me, try leaving your email address within the comment. Due to Blogger changes, I've heard that some people aren't able to leave comments here at all. In that case, you can always email me at audkateaster at gmail dot com if you'd like and I'll respond from there. Thanks so much for visiting!
