Garden Basket

How is your garden growing?  mine is not too bad considering all the heat we had, then the rain.  Some of the plants I thought were dead, and now flowering again.  Isn't Nature wonderful!

This months little basket is called "Garden Basket".  It is one of those tricky cactus type baskets where you have set in seams.  If you want to make a nice job of this one, you need to stop sewing when you get to the seam line, and do a little back-stitch.  This will enable you to set the background pieces in nice and neat.  When hand piecing it is relatively easy to do this, but on the machine it takes a little more patience.

You will see in my photo above that I "almost" managed to line up the lines of my print so that it look all straight. Did not quite get there.  I call my work more "folky" than precise - it adds to the charm of it.  Well, that is my excuse, and I am sticking with it

Hope you like it.  The pattern is now available as a free download on the Legend and Lace website.  To get the block, you need to put it into your shopping cart, then follow all the "continue" buttons - there are about 3, and finally you get to the payment screen, but you do not pay.  An email is sent to you with the link.  You get 3 days and 3 attempts to download it.  If you have a problem, just let me know and I will reset it for you. 

Don't forget the photos!

I am working on changing my email address to Legendandlace@gmail.com.  I get so much junk mail coming through, and the Gmail system has a better filter.  I will still get emails at the old address, but these days they are mostly adds for "senior dating" or "marital aids" or some other thing I have no interest in!
