    Next week I will be traveling with my mother and we will be stopping at friends and relatives. So I felt the 'need' to make 'thank you' gifts

    I found my clothesline at BiMart (regional general/hardware store). The line is a poly/cotton blend, 3/16" (size). I will have to check out Family Dollar :wink:

    Maybe I should think about visiting the USA right now, the Aussie dollar is better value :) My door is always open to fellow quilters.

    Oh my gosh!! How on earth do you do all that in just a week? Seriously, do you sleep? lol! Just made my first quilt. Did it in 18 days but there were days I was lucky to eat! ;-) It took soooooo long! I'm really interested in how you did the fabric basket. Is there a pattern for that?
