A Blueberry Basket for you
Hope you like this little basket. I will turn it the other way so you get another view of it.
Looks a little crooked in the corner, but it is just the angle of the photo. I squared the block up when it was finished. I am hand stitching all my blocks, and I find that easy with the templates. The girls doing them on the machine might find the sizing a bit hard again this month as there are a couple with 1/16ths and 7/16ths. I usually take these up to the next measurement, and trim back if I need to.
We have just had our second heat wave of the summer. This time the temperature got up to 46C - that is 115F, and it did not even cool down at night much. Once the heat was over, we had the most incredible gale that lasted all night and half of the day. There is lots of damage with trees and houses. We got off fairly lightly with 2 broken trees......and lots of dirt! Everything I touch has a new coating of dust on it. Have not felt much like sewing.
Enjoy stitching this little basket. I would love to see some photos if you can be bothered sending them to me. You can get your pattern from the Legend and Lace website HERE
