Empty Baskets

My wool worm baskets

are finally empty!

only because
I dumped everything on a table

been hooking rugs again...
there are eight
in progress right now

three others needing binding
been using mostly strips
that are already cut
only cutting for backgrounds
if needed...

Now it's time to organize the
mess the strips became

time once again organize by color...
and post photos of "after"

~might take a few days~

Chester never gets his way

at least that's what he thinks...



Mom stitched me a few blocks...




Am waiting for one more

and I'll make a little quilt

She isn't in the mood to
make a whole quilt...
but blocks are another story!

As always, lucky me

Your Mom does beautiful applique and you are so lucky to have her make you those treasures!
I've been hooking with my leftover worms, too.
I can't wait to see your projects they are always so perfectly primitive!

Talk about your eye candy! Those luscious wormies!

Poor Chester, looks like he is having the change of weather/season blues... tickle his chin, and scratch an ear from me.
