baby blocks and baskets

Well it has been back to normal here this last week.  Thankfully the week has flown but holidays seem like they are a distant memory.
I have been working on my stitcheries and I have only Miss Kitty to go. Then I will need to think about how to put them together. I have an idea but it just needs to translate to actions.
I do enjoy these stitcheries though..

 At the end of last week I put these baskets together...
I thought I was so clever that they pieced together so nicely, reasonable job of the points but somewhere along the line I have sewn a smidge too much in the seam allowance and these blocks will probably be smaller than the others when they are completed. I will plod along and see where it ends up.
After some consultation with some of my cheerleaders I am not going to worry about it and hopefully it will work out.
(fingers crossed)

Tomorrow I am off to Kilmore Quilter's Quilt in with Liz and Rosalie.
Which reminds me I need to pack some crafting to do while I am there.....
...After I have cleaned this messy house and done the hunting and gathering!

Hope you all have a crafty weekend
Marina

Very cute stitcheries. The baskets look great hope it all works out.

Your stitcheries are so sweet, and the stitching is immaculate! It will be a lucky baby that receives this treasure. I think you soldier on with the baskets too.......if they are all a smidge too small, they will fit together at the end. Enjoy your stitching day tomorrow.

Love the stitcheries Marina - looking forward to seeing what you do with them. Your baskets look great - hopefully if they are consistently the same (smallish) size it should all work out for you! Have a great Sunday!
