Something Accomplished

Whew! At least i can say i accomplished some sewing this week! Last night i made one of the fabric baskets from Pink Penguin's tutorial. It was very easy and quick to make and I made it out of scraps from my SILs jellyroll bag...so SIL you are getting a fabric basket. I'd like to make one that will match my bathroom and maybe make it a bit larger to hold make-up...gosh, i could find a lot of ways to use these baskets around the house! Hope everyone is having a great week and Spring is just around the corner! Hubby must be getting itchy to get out on his Harley because he left on it for a "short" ride around town and that was 1 1/2 hours ago...it is 25 degrees now and the wind chill is 14 ... i think he needs his head examined :O)

Cute basket! I've got enough jelly roll ends around here to make a few of those.
We've got the Harley Spring fever here too. With 70's forcasted for this weekend we hope to get ours out and on the road. (I don't ride - just ride along! But still love it!)
