I didn't fare very well sewing or blogging wise in April - I don't even really know what I did the whole month, lol. I did get a few projects finished though, and now the weather is finally warming up so maybe my hibernation will be over :D
Our twin greats (niece & nephew) turned 3 early in the month, and I made them each a drawstring backpack
. I'm hoping that their mom sends me a picture of the kids wearing them - she HAS to be a better photographer than I am, lol.

I stitched a set of dinosaur fabric baskets
for a Christmas gift - this month I used the last of the fabric and made one more basket for the set -- this latest one is the 8" size (the others are the 7", 6" and 5" size).
|The newest basket, the 8" size :)|
|Inside of the basket - all of them have a covered plastic canvas removable base :)|
|Here's the entire set of 4 baskets :)|

That set turned out well so I made another one (another Christmas gift) - can you say ... busting stash? Each set took a meter of outer and a meter of lining fabric, plus I had scraps left over to make a few zipper bags :)
|I call this the Roadway set, which includes the 8", 7", 6" and 5" size baskets :)|
|As with the dinosaur set, each basket has a covered plastic canvas base for sturdiness :)|
|They stack together so nicely :)|
My efforts to work on new-to-me projects didn't go well this month - I only got around to doing ONE
new project, and it's tiny, lol (6.5" tall, 5" wide). Cute, though!

Now - providing I haven't missed the deadlines (like I have a few times already - timezones apparently confuse me!) I'm posting these projects to:
