I once worked with someone who would always come into work on Wednesdays declaring "it's hump day!" I guess she took it upon herself to announce that the weekend was soon coming! It was so cute! lol It certainly relieved the stress we experienced at that branch! Gosh, I don't miss working for a bank!
I don't have much in terms of completed projects to show you, but I have been busy prepping away. I always make it a point to have hand projects ready to be worked on. It just makes it easier to get some quilting done when I have a few minutes.
I keep it all in a portable basket.
There you have my hand basket. I made it a bit messy just for you! lol
As you can see, I have everything one could possibly need when it comes to hand work and more.
The red box is one of those older Tupperware storage box. I think it was purchased in the early 80's when I wasn't a quilter. There's more under neath the top insert, but I'm sure you get the picture! I always keep the cover on and pile everything on top.
In the basket, I also have special items that friends have given me. If you took the red box out, you would find some cards and meaningful stuff from my DD and friends. I guess you could call it a happy hand basket. The things in there do make me happy!
When I grab my happy hand basket, I know everything I may need and more is in there!
How do you organise your hand work? Do you have a special container? Is it portable?
Back to the prepping!
I prepped 3 (three) blocks from the Baltimore Cousin BOM, a quilt I have been working on since June 2006.
Gosh it's taking a while! I do like the way the blocks are coming out!
I have one more block to prep and that should do it for the quilt top. I haven't decided if I'll do the block they suggested, which is another flower pot, or a different one. I was thinking of including a pear tree.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great Hump Day!
