 If you know me...I can be a basket case...
  I can get behind in my posts but my intentions are good.
Maybe if I stayed home a while...nah I like my adventures!

One of my favorite swaps in 2016 was 
The Basket Case Swap sponsored on Instagram.
My partner, Janet Smith (@bayleebarkley) 
loves Tula Pink...found this in my stash.

I decided to make a one hour basket...

added some simple quilting...

The finished basket turned out great!

She also mentioned Cotton and Steel was a favorite fabric...
I did a little research and found she enjoys paper piecing.
So I made a paper piecing tool pouch.

Here is the entire package I sent.  
With paper piecing tools in the case.
( small cutting board/rotary cutter)
 and a fun flying geese pincushion.

and of course my partner Jaia @handmadebyjaia
Sending me all this Ghastliness!

I should have made a resolution for 2017 to keep on top of my posts...
but I am not a resolution kinda gal...
better late than NEVER
and hopefully you enjoy them regardless of the timing!
