A Tisket, A Tasket

Another fabric basket!

I made this yesterday with the little charm squares Catherine sent along as an extra goodie with her bluebird giveaway.  These fabrics are from the new Antique Fair line by Blackbird Designs.  Aren't the colors and patterns pretty?  I filled it with some raffia and speckled eggs I found at Hobby Lobby.  Yep, I am ready for spring.  Thanks again Catherine for giving me some fuel for my recent sewing frenzy.  :o)


I thought you might also enjoy this shot which precisely shows the enormous cooperation and hard work I get from my photography "assistants" around here.  What is it about the camera and pets?  When I want to take a picture of THEM they either disappear or refuse to sit still.  I didn't realize until I downloaded the pictures that I had such a detailed view of Ziggy's eyeball!  LOL

I hope your week is off to a fabulous start!  Thanks for stopping by.  :o)

Oh, that Ziggy--perhaps he was a supermodel in a former life and just wants to be the center of attention...

Seriously, though, your basket is gorgeous, Myra--so fresh and spring-like! Beautiful work once again :)

Lovely work--It's cold here today, so not sprint yet! :/

I just love the basket Myra, the colours are beautiful and have a real cosy cottage feeling to them, they would look lovely with my oak floor!!!!!
Now you could try all day long to get a pic like that and you would never succeed, clever Ziggy xxx
