February - Tick!...

Part 1 ticked off...and with days to spare! wahoo!!...
Not sure about the basket handle but I'll revisit that if I can't live with it when the time comes...my applique is kinda wonky anyway so maybe it will fit in nicely at the end with the rest of the wonkiness...

Happy Stitching...

I think your handle and the rest of your appliqué looks very nice. Have you heard of the Amish block? Well its the 'not-so-perfect' block. So lets just say your basket can be your 'Amish' block. Although I think it looks lovely. What basket has a perfect handle? Happy Stitching from Canada
