Start the day with a cup of Strawberry yogurt and tons of fresh fruit.

I'm not a sports fan like most people are this time of year, so if you say Super Bowl, I tend to change the subject! I like to go to the craft room or read if the games are on. Speaking of reading- I just ordered a few books and since I've gone through them, all that's left is the box. 
What's that saying we had after Christmas? Give them toys and they just want to play with the box!!
Hey- that's what we'll do- Play With The Box!! So here's my version of making a fabric basket::

A box full of goodies!
The Beginning of the Fabric Basket.
Remove items from box, turn over, trace - allow 1/4 " seam allowance.
Cut fabric and batting. Sew sides together.
Basket Project #3
Glue bottom fabric liner onto box and tuck in edges.
Tacky glue or duct tape to secure.
Sew top liner the same way.
Basket Project #4
Place basket liner inside box and bring over the edge. If too loose, remove liner and increase seam allowance.

Baskets- Complete!
On left, made in June 1984. Right made in February 2011.
A handle was created for older basket out of fabric sewn into a tube and stuffed with polyester fiberfill.
These boxes would be cute made out of Holiday Fabrics, imagine a Valentine Box, a St Patrick's Day Basket filled with chocolate filled gold coins, or an Easter Basket; hope my family doesn't read this!

Be Happy and Quilt!

  2. If you’re going to strap on the same fake watchesevery day, it needs to look good with both your Tuesday suit and your Sunday t-shirt, but you don’t want it to be boring. You don’t have to spend five figures to get a great breitling replica.Theklockor kopior Globemaster ($120) handles all situations effortlessly and is packed with technology like a totally anti-magnetic movement and a more accurate and durable co-axial escapement,you’ll notice the seconds hand seems to tick like on a quartz
    rolex replica, but this rolex replicais because of a special gear-and-spring system inside that gives it the so-called “deadbeat seconds” for more precise timekeeping.As the brand’s iconic omega repliqueindividual product, admirable adroitness and absolute kelly 35cm demonstrates what both central and outside.
