Dear Finny,

I am writing with some embarrassment. Due to unforeseen circumstances (me being busy with other things– tomatoes, namely), I didn’t get both projects done for February. I did manage last night to finish my wall-pocket experiment:

Wall Pocket

This was created for Baby Eloise’s nursery. She is to be born any day now and her French nursery is very red/white/black. I thought this would be a handy way to store diaper supplies next to the changing table. While the original February Craft idea came from lovely London Purple’s project, I used a modified version I found in Seams to Me.

And then I started cranking on the basket project. Just as you envisioned, I love it! The use of scraps, the coiling, the beautiful results within minutes of starting. However, I wish I’d paid more attention when buying the clothesline because I ended up with 1/4″ line, which means this is going to take a very long time. The result, I hope, will be beautiful. But I’m not reaching the finish line anytime soon with this baby bee basket. And so, I ask for wee bit more time…

Any ideas what you’ve got up your sleeve for the March CRAFT Along projects?
