Getting Ready for Miss Mary's!

I"ve been busy getting ready for Miss Mary's! I can't WAIT! Miss Mary's is an old farmhouse where a bunch of us gather this time of year to hunker down and eat, laugh and yes even sew! Although sometimes we are laughing so hard and talking so much we can't sew a straight line. Top of my list was getting roommate gifts ready. For some reason I can't ever think of something cute to buy, but I always come up with something to make! Only problem with that is that I have to get them done before I go! So here are some fabric baskets for my gifts! These just turn out sooo cute! If you want to know where the pattern is, it is listed on my side bar under tutorials.

And I finally got one kit ready! This is going to be just a small quilt, but I LOVE it! Carol knows what it will be! The rest of you will have to just wait. I"m not showing right now because Sossy is making it with me and I haven't told her yet what it is!

So only a short time now and I"ll be joining Linda, Jan, Sossy and Laura for a fun fillled weekend! I can't wait!

Sounds like alot of fun! ANd the baskets are great...I'd love one! I'm going to bookmark your site to come back and check out the tute for them. I think my daughter would like one for the new baby's room, and I'm definately going to make one for my sewing room...I need to redo that room in a bad way! Hope I follow through...if thinking burned calories, I'd be super thin! HA.

Sound like fun and the little baskets are very cute, I've made a few but all of them disappeared quickly, not even one left for me! I will have to make one and hide it with my chocolate stash!
