The smaller project was one I enjoyed very much putting together. One of my groups was doing a "Glimpse from a window" mini quilt. I thought of my view of a neighbor's pasture from my livingroom window. So I began looking through my scraptub for horse fabric. After putting the window together, I decided that something was needed in the foreground, something more interesting than the chair and floorlamp that sets there. So I added a table and put my knitting basket on the table.
I wove some tan fabric together for the basket, added some "knobs" cut from a novelty yarn for balls of yarn, and added knitting needles made from jewelry head pins. It made a lovely little 5 x 7 wallhanging.
