Charming Addition Day



Today was dedicated to sewing on the two Charming Addition quilts I am making.  
The first one was started in December and is set to be finished in November.  I put on three more rows today.  It is a king size so I have to fold it in half in order for it to fit in the picture .  
Why do kitties always insist on helping you out?


This one was started last month and it is a full size and will be for a birthday gift this September.   I did another seven rows on this one.  
Notice a kitty on the prowl to mess this one up too.  
During the week I finished block 13 of Sweet and Simple.    
I finished sewing 25 more baskets this month.  (no picture)  That brings my total to 250 of 300 needed. I prepped another 10 baskets and 1 Sweet and Simple block so I should be set for hand stitching for the week.

That's it for this weekend.  I have two more things on my list for April that I am hoping to get to next weekend.  That is if Homestead Hearth would get them in the mail.  Grrrrrrrrrrr

Have a great week everyone!  
Yvette

Love your Sweet Simple block. But then I usually like anything that's appliqued! You are on a roll with your baskets. You'll be done in no time!
