From this..........

 To this........
This month's club project at Sew This and That is a peg basket.  I am not sure that my pegs will cope with being in a shiny new home, after the dingy, dull flower pot that they have called home for ever.
We used mesh for the base and laminated fabric for the hanging top, with boning stitched in to give it the shape.  Even better is that we finished it in the class with time to spare.  Every one took home a completed peg basket so we were all very happy.

Added bonuses are that I dont have to keep bending down to pick up my pegs, and also the little Grandies and the dog wont be able to knock it over.

Win Win........

I have just been reminded too that it is 1st Friday of the month, so I am off to join in with
If you are keen to join the fun, go here to sign up.  I am looking forward to having a lovely stitchy night.

Those cherries are just so cheerful and hopefully they will make a dull chore a bit more fun. Me, I would rather do laundry than wash dishes any day though!! LOL...but I rarely use my peg bag/line. It's just me, so laundry goes on an airing rack or on hangers under the deck. xx debbie

Oh wow... what a great design for the peg basket.... it is lovely... and I can vouch that it is much easier to get the pegs hanging from the basket than picking them up frorm all over the garden!!!
