We had a wonderfully lazy day at home today for the Martin Luther King Jnr holiday. Since it was so incredibly cold, (0 degrees F which for my NZ/Oz readers is MINUS 17 degrees celcius! Can you even imagine how cold that is???) we stayed indoors as much as possible. I was sitting on my bed and my bedside drawers started talking to me, saying, "Clean me! Clean me!" And a trash bag full later, the job was done. Believe me, this is a HUGE improvement over the before. I didn't think to take a 'before' shot, but this drawer (ok all 3 of them) was completely packed and overflowing with junk. And what did I find at the bottom of one of them but something that wasn't junk - 22 finished basket blocks and 2 more unfinished ones. I had forgotten all about these, so it was a very exciting find! I did a couple of posts about them way back in 2009 which you can read here and here.
So I took a few stitches in the one above (that counts for my sewing for the day, right?!) and thought, hmmm, I really should do something with these. My friend Anna designed the baskets, so Anna, I know you're reading this - what should I do with them?!!
Anna does not know how to write a short blog post. No matter how hard she tries, each post becomes a novel, but that's a good thing because she is such an interesting person and amazingly talented to boot!
