Fragments

Dealing with fragments and focusing on nothing. 
Not to worry...it's all good!  :-)
 
I've had to deal with some family issues, thankfully not with my immediate family, just the "nuts" on our family tree.  LOL 
 


I've allowed myself fragments of time to do some sewing.  woohoo!!! 
 At the very last minute I decided to participate in the 2013 Mystery BOM from The Fat Quarter Shop.  woohoo!!! 
I've promised myself that I will assemble each block as soon as the kit arrives so I don't get behind.  You know me and BOM projects.  LOL 
Blocks 1 and 2 - done - woohoo!!!


The Temecula Quilt Co started a challenge ... make a tiny (2" finished) basket block every day between July 1 and August 30. 
I thought it would be fun to participate - gives me a reason to spend some time in my sewing room every day.  I'm sure you've seen versions of this adorable block all over blogland. 
I decided to go back to the 30's for my version.  :-)
 
Thank you for stopping by to visit with me. 
I hope to be back real soon to share another project or two. 
Enjoy a pieceful day.
 
In Friendship!

Hello there Darlene! Hooray for finding some fragments of time to sew. I'm trying to do the same. It's been a bit hectic here. Your baskets, both the BOM and minis are very cute! I totally understand on getting behind on the BOM. I'm just getting started on the FQS BOM that just ended! I have 2 blocks done! WOOHOO. LOL!

Your blocks look great Darlene. I'm doing the BOM too but it takes about a couple of weeks to arrive here in Australia. Those little mini baskets are very cute.

I could kick myself for not doing my little baskets in 30's. How cute are they???!!! No, I am not doing another set. LOL!
Your mystery blocks are perfect! You can keep up, I just know it.

I'm glad you have found a few minutes for sewing. I tried one of those adorable baskets and gave up. Good for you to keep going.

Good way to counteract nuts---make baskets!

Who cannot love baskets and it looks as though your sewing room is full of all kinds of them at the moment.

Great stuff happening there!

I like your baskets Darlene. I am always going back to the 30's too. Can't get enough of them. It is going to be another beautiful "Darlene" quilt.

Quilter Kathy said...

I do love these little basket projects popping up, and am sure I will give in eventually...they are too darn cute!

Bowbailey said...

Cute basket blocks! I'm working on the same project and you only need to make one basket block each of the 31 days of July. I know how time consuming they are to make, so just wanted to let you know

Deanna said...

I love your baby baskets! I thought to do that challenge, but I am not ready for a new project right now.

Darlene, those baskets are adorable. I do not think I will be able to make 2" blocks. Love your fabric too, but then you always work with pretty fabric.
