So, it's the second Monday and the next installment of Little Wooly Baskets is due today. I really wasn't sure I would get it done but I made it. I don't like to share a ton of personal stuff here on the blog since you guys come here for quilting stuff but a bit of an update is due. I am sooooo behind! I am behind on shipping orders, magazine deadlines, book work, you name it. As you all know my dad became ill in January requiring we care for him at home until his passing. We brought in February with his funeral. We were just getting back to some sort of normal when my mom's cancer took a turn and suddenly I found myself taking her for extra chemo, doctor's appointments and helping with additional errands that were difficult for her to do. Follow that with her needing to go to the hospital, follow that with her developing a sudden and terminal complication. This meant 12 days at the hospital around the clock- real life on hold. I think I slept at home 2 nights. Along with this I have had to juggle her finances, make funeral arrangements and all. Somewhere along the way I just crashed! Grief coupled with physical and mental exhaustion took over. I am now trying to get caught up, one thing at a time. It is a huge list of to-dos along with cleaning out my mom's apartment. So for today I am posting the Little Wooly Baskets, hoping to get several things crossed off the list including shipping ALL orders and I am striving to have a tear free day. We'll just have to see about the tear free thing. But anyway- here's Block 5- Strawberries!
I cut all my stems for both blocks freehand. You do what feels right for you. One of the great things about this BOM is seeing how everyone has made the blocks their own.
The patterns can be found HERE.
I will be back soon with some info on new patterns!
