Small Finishes

Hope everyone had a happy Easter !  It is not a holiday here in the US, so I am very envious of the long weekend my friends in Europe have had. 
I had a lot of fun making the knotted basket by Dame Valiste.  It is a wonderful tutorial and I can't wait to make a lot more of these as gifts.  There is another version with a buttoned top, I am going to make that with a small pincushion instead of a button to use as a sewing basket.  There is a surprising amount of room in the basket, just right for a small project.
The small red quilt is quilted, bound and hanging on its wire hanger.  Very simple, but a quick and fun project.  It will hang in the stairway of my new (old) house in Germany.
