THE BEGINNINGS OF MY THIRD BASKET
Ok, so here is the beginning of my third basket I started this morning. I wanted to get the base done while it was fresh in my mind and hopefully finish it up tonight. I was looking at one of my many baskets that I have on hand and liked the way the base was made. So after looking at it for quite awhile last night, I think I figured out how to do it and voila. I"m sure I went about it the hard way but it still looks good enough that you really can't see to much where I started and finished the reeds. This basket should measure about 10" long and 6" tall and will had a nice square handle. I found a great card table for $9 at Value Village the other day and its great for making baskets on, because I have to keep my reeds wet while working with them. My work table in my wool room is full of, well you know............. Just having lunch now and DH and I will go for a walk in the woods while its so nice and mild out here today. Can't wait to get back to it tonight though. I'll keep you posted.
