BASKET FLIMSEY

                              "A-TISKET-A-TASKET # 3" has become a
                                                      CHRISTMAS piece..
.
Every year at Christmas I lament upon seeing all those lovely Christmas 
pieces all over our blog-o-sphere, because I don't have any that I have made for 
our home. :(())

SO, this morning I dug deep in my OLD STASH and found these lovely Holiday
border strips I had so neatly cut for parts of Christmas quilts for my children
when I first began quilting
...and thought 
                                                        !!!     SHAZAM     !!!..

These REALLY would play well together and
...I love mixing old and new....

I really do love these prints (I think Debbie Mum? Not sure); but I cannot find 
anything similar these days (I know this really dates me....;{{{ )   )
 so, now I will be able to  enjoy them for myself....








Adorable Santas and friends
(and not some weird looking
Santas like I see today--jes
sayin')





AND:                        Cute little decorated bird houses.....(be still my heart)....

The side borders and fussy cut flowers on my baskets are also from an older
fabric..

I machine zig-zaged the flowerets onto each basket (secret: in some places where those
free cut handles didn't quite get put in the right places, the flowers masked the
off-placements  really well).  What fun...

I had a lot of fun free cutting and sewing as it came on this piece.

AND..
I have another one to come using the background leftovers for baskets and the
border fabrics for backgrounds... a real "twofer".....

AND I will be using up all but a few little "scrappy orts" that will go into my "strange
pieces leftovers" box....
