I could use a suggestion…

December 7, 2007

geraniums.jpgAbout 3 yrs ago, I bought this basket at Pier 1. I love the basket, but I have no idea what to do with it. I tried hanging it on the wall, and rolling up my dishtowels to store in each little cubby, but they tended to fall out. Once the cat realized he could just reach them from the counter. (where he wasn’t supposed to be anyway)

So… We’re going to have a little contest!!!! Leave a comment, giving me your idea on how to use this basket and the one I like the best, and works the best, will win….. (I wish I had a drum) A complete pattern library of my past Idaho Quilt Company designs – their choice, quilt patterns, stitchery patterns or penny rug patterns. And the penny rug pattern library includes 1 kit!

Well, it’d probably help if you could take a peek at the basket huh?

Couldn’t help but show off my snowmen at the same time 🙂 The basket is 9 1/2 x 18. Each cubby is 4 1/2 x 3 3/4.  I don’t mind putting it on a table, or top of a cabinet, hanging it on a wall.. whatever!!!! I’m just tired of moving it around and never using it. So, bring on the bright ideas!

Now… Etsy news! I listed one item today, and hope to list one item every day until I’m out of new items! AND… I really want to get rid of the quilts I have on there, so I cut their prices in half.

Here’s the finished pillow, it’s what came out of this picture…Ok, well that’s not entirely true, now that I see this ‘unfinished’ picture. But it’s a clue as to what’s coming! (same pillow in pink and lavender fabrics) I crocheted that edging! I think it’s the perfect little extra touch.

Visit my Etsy Shop I’ve listed some quilts I’d like to sell, but I’ll be listing some other things in the coming days. I have to admit I miss making and selling things, as in the dreaded craft fair days. ugh. Did I really say that? However, Etsy is the best of both worlds – no setting up a booth, no manning a booth in the rain and wind, it’s open 24/7 and I just have the fun of making things!

It’s turning fall-like here – the Crepe Myrtle are blooming (a local ad had them listed as Crape Myrtle)
