I am wondering if I need throw my hat into the blog? Many days, weeks even, have passed since I last posted. Excuses? None.
Block 35, Flower Basket should have been easy had I kept the stitching momentum up. First I traced the templates onto the right side of the fabric, then forgot to cut the handle on the bias! I guess the price one pays for absence is lost time.
Flower Basket is a joyous block as one can imagine the lady of the house, be it mother or daughter, wandering around the garden in the early morning choosing a few flowers to brighten the home. No matter where we live, or how seemingly barren the landscape, a few carefully chosen flowers, for there are flowers for every corner of the world, lighten and brighten the landscape and the home.
