A little quilting, a little knitting and a surprise!

I've been trying to quilt everyday for at least an hour, and most days I manage that...
I am quilting the background now of Block #1.
I am still undecided on what I am quilting in the large space on the basket but I will eventually decide on that.
While quilting I found a surprise. I had appliqued this quilt using freezer paper and when it was all stitched down I just removed the freezer paper from the backside. Well, as I was quilting my fingers ran across a leaf and I heard the distinct crinkle of paper!
I pulled out some of the stitching and dug inside with tweezers and look what I found!
Now I will stitch it back up and no one will be the wiser...
except us of course.
And I finished my coiled bowls.
I managed to get three bowls from the scraps of batiks I had cut. I still have clothesline left so I see more in my future.
And I am knitting the second of a pair of socks! These ones are for me.
And finally I bought these cute little mini "bonbons" of yarn...I won't say much for now but they are needed so I can get a start on making Christmas presents! This past year I was in last minute panic mode and I am hoping that doesn't happen again- ever!
Happy Stitching!
