The first thing I did this morning (after 2 cups of coffee) was make up two new baskets for the kitchen. When DH got home last night, he, too, liked the baskets better. So I rummaged around and found some different items--this time I have a cobalt blue theme going. I didn't feel like spending too much time on it, so just sort of threw things together. In one basket, I added some fresh flowers (Sweet William and clustered bellflower). I like it better now, but it is not the permanent arrangement. At least everything got cleaned last night--you won't find a speck of dust (even in the grooves of the baskets), so my time was not totally wasted.
Let the Basting Begin! - I am using my dining room table to baste this big one -- it's about 105 x 105 inches (king size). It's been a while since I've finished one this big.
