I've been busy weaving, weaving, weaving. For the last few days, I've even put my stitching aside and only worked on baskets.
This first group of baskets are special orders, 2 of them are going to be used in a wedding shower. Hopefully I'll see photos of them being used.
Next week, the living history museum where I work is hosting a gathering of rug hookers. This is an annual event at Sauder Village (www.saudervillage.org) that brings hundreds of rug hookers in for the week to take classes, hook and shop. Rug Hookers like their baskets and I'm happy to oblige....
I made 5 tote baskets with Shaker tape handles, a few large storage baskets and a few smaller baskets featuring prim wool labels.
With all this weaving, I have added only 1 new basket to my Etsy shop...
Tonight I am going to sit and cross stitch until I go to bed - no more weaving today!
We are enjoying a wave of cooler weather - I hope you are too.
