And the finished basket!!

Here it is! The basket in all its glory - please excuse the white spot - I don't want any clues getting out before it reaches its recipient .
Tonight I have finished another small something which is a giveaway so I can't show you just yet. Next I need to work on my the birthday gift for my assigned partner in the Stitching Bloggers Birthday exchange. I have finally decided on the pattern and the finish so tomorrow night will sort out the threads. It is always fun starting something new and this will be the last of my smalls - I need to get back to my Quaker Christmas which is languishing in the WIP basket. Besides which I have a long list of "want to do" in my mind.


I can hear the roar of the rugby from nearby Eden Park as the All Blacks play the Wallabies - I hope we win but I I'm not keen enough to brave the freezing wind to go and watch or to even turn on the TV. It is more fun to guess by the muffled roars that come up the street.


Have a good night everyone.

  3. The basket looks lovely - well done!

    It's funny what you said about hearing the roars from a game. There's an odd comfortable feeling about it, isn't there? I hope your side winds too. ;-)
