Failure? Not really.

Last month I linked to Lovely Year of Finishes for the very first time. Usually due dates and linky parties works for me but nothing really happened this time around. My goal was to make open wide zipper pouches. I precut the fabrics and embellished front panels about year ago. Well I didn't even pulled those out of my drawer. So should I set it as a goal for September? I took it out and looked at it. I really did not feel like turning those into pouches any more. I wanted to try fabric baskets instead. So I gave it a go and I finally turned those into something. It doesn't feel like failure after all even though I missed the due date. I made the lining slightly taller and double folded the top edge. Easy peasy.


Fill with goodies and you got pretty gift in no time.

I was thinking about adding a snap in the middle. It would like like a pouch. Don't you think?

My current WiP is Ballerina quilt. My goal is to make quilt top by the end of September. I'm thinking 3D pinwheel, some flowers and maybe a butterfly or two. I'm not talking about finished quilt since there are quite a few other plans.
