Slowly working on finishing up the basket blocks.  I have finished 269 out of 291.  If I'd concentrate and push a bit, they'd be finished in short order.  I seem to be piddling now that the end is in site.   Just 22 more to go!

It's been a busy weekend with the help I had in the yard Friday and Saturday.   I figure by the time we get through trimming everything, it'll be time to start over.

Happy Memorial Day!

This week I picked up this project again to work on.  The baskets are from When the Cold Wind Blows by Blackbird Designs.  I now have 260 baskets done - only 31 more to go.  I think I'll leave this one out to work on instead of hiding it in the closet.

I've decided not to do the appliqued on-point setting squares.  Enough is enough.  I'll just do a straight setting so I can get this one done in this lifetime.
