I've been busy weaving in between all the basketball games! I'd like to share what I finished up today (we are home from school due to icy road conditions and snow. Unfortunately today will have to be made up at the end of the year as we've gone through all our calamity days. It's never fun to make up at the end of the year.)
This first little basket just might be my favorite - well at least for today - I have a problem that they are all my favorites! I love how the personalities of egg/rib baskets develop. I always have a plan for the rim and handle, but the basket always tells me what it has in mind.
I've been experimenting with color this week. I'm calling this one a Shaker gathering basket. It is stained blue and over stained with black walnut dye. Love the color.
Another egg basket - little larger than the first one I posted. Handles are 6 3/4"
