Lori posted about some baskets she had made in a Gwen Marston class and it got me thinking about some baskets I started last spring. I am not 100% sure where I got the inspiration for these, probably from a variety of sources (including Jan Patek and Audrey). I just took pieces of freezer paper and free cut the baskets and appliqued them on some dark, grey fabric. I started adding triangles and then got sidetracked. This might be a fun way to begin 2016, adding some more triangle blocks and maybe some checker boards for a board. We will see.
I spent most of the morning in my sewing room doing some decluttering and digging out. I cut out a tunic dress that I am hoping to sew next week. Our Christmas celebrations are very low key which leaves plenty of time for playing with fabric. Stay tuned.
