A Little Basket

So many crafts that I love to do and so little time to do them in. In addition to finishing a sweater for my baby, I can't wait to sew every chance I get. Here is my latest sewing project. I used the free tutorial on the Pink Penguin site to make this cute little patchwork basket. It is my first attempt at a patchwork anything and has shown me that I can make that quilt I want to some day - with more practice and patience.

Remembering that I don't have to finish every project that I start while my boys are napping will help eliminate some of my errors. I just like to get things done - nothing wrong with that though.

This little something is going to hold some books and handmade bookmarks and then is on its way to my niece for her 9th birthday.
