It's Friday!

I was reminded yesterday just how much I depend and am entertained by electricity.  Our electricity went out unexpectedly right in the middle of The Young and the Restless.  It stayed out until after 6:30.  Argh.  No light, no internet, no nothing.  I couldn't even vacuum.  I had planned to, really.  It was like Little House on the Prairie.  Awful.  How's a person supposed to survive?  I still stitched but carefully since the lighting was not so good.  So today I am going to appreciate every single minute of electricity that I have.  Like right now on the computer.

I finished up a project that I got last Friday when BFF#2 and I went to House of Stitches.

It is so cute!  I love it.

  It was easy to stitch and not too bad to finish.  The paint job could use a few touch ups.

 If you look closely, there are a few places that need some paint in the crevices.  I think I would like to put a cardboard piece in the bottom of the basket since it is supposed to be an Ort container.  I had to buy paint and the paper to finish the lid.


  1. Adorable.Love this lovely basket. Stitching is beautiful. Happy Stitching.

  2. The little ort basket is adorable! Thanks for all the detail pictures - I always like to see the way things work.

  3. I guess we take thing for granted until we don't have them. then we miss them.
    The Ort Basket is too cute.
