IN THE BASKET I FOUND...


That is the basket I found full of unfinished stuff when I was tidying up in my sewing room, inside were all these things, they are in no particular order, just as I pulled them out and Rebecca helped me too, along with her new doll. I have given the UFO's a number each, there are other bits and bobs that will be sorted as and when, I don't consider them a UFO right now. So here we go...

My favorite is the Tea Cup quilt. I love that. You should finish it first. The pinwheels is nice too. You have some nice UFO's there Mrs. Jan. Hubs is looking good in the background too.

Pat said...

All I can say is WOW....I like several of your items. The blue and yellow block made me remember that I bought blue and yellow fabric and want to make a blue and yellow quilt at some point......you know...."someday". LOL

Ann Flowers said...

Wow Jan, Lots of good projects in there, I'll be keeping my eye out for how you finish up the Almost Amish, and the Split 9 patch as well as the tea cup one. I am also curious to see how some of those projects will turn into bags. Particularly the purple flowery striped one. And what is a door name quilt? I haven't heard that phrase before. I am excited to watch your blog space in the coming weeks.

Hiya Di,
Yep we sorted the years out this morning for some of these...OH DEAR!!!!!!!

Fiona,
I hate to say it but these are just what I found in a basket, there are inumerable others...I will get to them eventually.....

Hi Joan,
Bless you.....


Noel,
I don't donate my quilts to the group I am afraid, I try to finish them and find good homes for them, not mind you that the homes of the people at my group aren't good..hahaha, but I want THEM to make THEIR OWN quilts.....heehee

Hi Leah,
Keep watching they WILL get done, one way or another.......

Thank you everyone for your comments on this little lot, I have answered most of you by email where I could.
Keep nagging me to get them done please. I need that basket empty.
Jan xxxxx
