I need to avert my eyes from cute fabric sites. I am in Love with Amy Butler's new Love fabric. Just gorgeous. I don't need more fabric. I don't need more fabric. I don't need more fabric...
Today and yesterday I have been working on catching up my mending and designing and sewing up and Easter basket for one of my kids. 1 down 4 more to go LOL. I had so much fun whipping this up. Over the New year I won a blog giveaway from Paula Prass of her gorgeous Woodland Delight fabric. It is so nice and cheery and perfect for spring! Thank you Paula.

OK now onto the pictures. Here is the finished basket. I will try and write up a tutorial at some point in the future. It's an easy project and only took 2-3 hours with cutting, pinning, Ironing and sewing. Oh and speaking of Irons, I won one from Sleepytime Sewing this month while I was in hospital! Couldn't come at a better time since my iron is on it's last legs. It's also time for my machine to take a trip to the sewing machine doctors. I broke a needle the other day and now the stitches aren't as nice and straight as they used to be.

OK I'll shut up already. LOL Pictures... I am going to do large ones for the front entry to store all the hats ect.

Oh and as if I didn't have more then enough projects I came across this tutorial by one of my favorite people and now have to make one of these too.
