Well that's exactly what I needed. So this week I got back to my chair and pulled out my Black-work Baskets.
I started these baskets way back in 2008 and worked on them off and on for a couple of years. Then for some reason I just set them aside. With this challenge I figured these would be a great project to work on.
This is my recliner with my snuggle quilt and my favorite little pillow and the floor lamp that I couldn't do without. I have a large basket that sits on the floor right behind the light and I keep some of my yarns and needles in there. I sure don't have any shortage of things to keep my hands busy. I love to crochet' and I've made several scarves and dishclothes. Nothing fancy by any means.
Here I am all set up to embroidery. Must have my ice water and Chap Stick!
And my little mug rug. I just love that little thing. I'm thinking I may have to make a few more.
I know Bonnie and others are using a calendar to keep track of their time ..... but I really don't want to have something that big so I did find this little tablet from one of my favorite quilt shops and decided this would be perfect.
So this is where I started this week and after 6½ hours this is how far along I got.
I'm going to try to put in a little more time this week. I know I can get this block finished and get another one started.
Now I'm heading over to Bonnie's Quiltville (One Hour of Needle & Thread) to link up. Grab your cup and follow me. Let's go see what others have done this week.
Have a great week and.....
