It was awesome!


Well, the ECMC fair was fantastic!  I saw a lot of friends, and met some new ones as well.  It was really busy both days, and lots of unique items in the room to buy for Christmas gifts.  The next one will be in the Spring, I'll keep you posted for dates!

Last week, I made this little basket from a tutorial posted at Film in the Fridge.  The round bottom was a bit hard for me to ease in, but it's really cute.  Great little storage container for hair clips, polly pockets, pet shops.  You know, for all those toys that are so tiny and they end up in your vacuum cleaner.
I also made a journal cover but didn't get around to blogging it before the show.  I found a tutorial at Stitched in Color for the cover, and really like that it uses up lots of stash pieces.

Anyhow, right now, I'm in the process of making a custom order t-shirt quilt.  It's pretty big, 69x86!  I have the top done, going to piece the back over the next couple of days and then hopefully will have it finished and ready to share by next week.  That's it for now, linking up to The Needle and Thread Network today.

Great journal cover, and the fabric you used for the basket is very nice.
