Cherry Tree Part 3 - the sides

Yay, its Sunday. Day of rest, for some, day of sewing for others. I have been working on some crochet stuff lately. I like really interesting blocks that I leave pretty neutral colored so you can really see the emphasis on the pattern and stitching itself. 

  

These two were free patterns. They really are square but the photo makes them look a bit askew. 
If you are on pinterest you can get these patterns off of my board called crochet. There are links there to the patterns and many more.
I think over the past couple years, with quilting so much, I have burnt myself out. I have many quilts on the go but seem to be putting them aside right now for a bit, in favor of working on other things. And also, the beautiful weather is finally making an appearance so I also like spending time outside right now. 

Did you join up for the quilting gallery mug rug swap this time? My partner is from South Africa. I have only touched base with her once so far but need to get that going. So much to do lately.

Also, I am suppose to be starting a new job. This was one of those things that just dropped in my lap. It is a home based job which I have always thought was a good idea. I use to have my own home based business in British Columbia doing signs and graphic design. I did not too bad considering that I lived out in the sticks. I sold it when I moved to Saskatchewan. Since then I have worked for others almost constantly. But anyways, this job is from Sykes and you can find it on the internet Home Based Work
Most home based work I have found is usually just a scam, they always want money. But if you check out the link this one is a bit different.
So, I have to go through 2 months training first, which you get paid for. I am looking forward to it. 

Next, I should give you the link to the 3rd part of the Cherry Tree pattern which will be the sides. One side is just to print the pattern and then, you need to reverse the other side. You will see if you are collecting or making the pattern, what needs to be done there. I am really bad for giving a great amount of details on my patterns as I figure that a lot of it is just common sense and the other part is that, if you quilt, you will already know what to do. 
So the link is here.

I also received my pattern for the basket quilt Springtime. A very pretty pattern and I now have it on my list and will post as I make progress. LOL I don't think that will be for awhile. 

Have a great rest of the day.....
