A Tisket a Tasket Block of the Month

I've finished appliqueing the January Block of the Month over at Bunny Hill Designs. These baskets are so cute and lots of fun to applique.
You all know how much we all love our gadgets. I ordered this rotary cutting blade from the Project Linus web site store. The "teeth" that stick out are really sharp. When you run this blade along the edge of a piece of fleece, it perforates holes in the fleece so that you can get a crochet hook through the hole and crochet a nice edging on it to make a blanket with a nice finished look. For right now this is my new favorite gadget!!!!!! This is my first finished fleece blanket with crocheted edging. I bought a couple more pieces of fleece today because I'm enjoying the crocheting in the evenings. Hope you are all taking some time to stitch a bit. Have a nice day.
