Baskets

A year ago I went to a friend's house to learn to make baskets. It just didn't click. Last week I went back again and it clicked! I had so much fun Sunday afternoon doing my homework. The large basket is going to be for dinner rolls and the small one can be a little sewing kit. My next lesson is to get the basket off the mold, trim them up and put rims on them. Finally they will be polyurethaned. The possibilities for baskets are endless. My ultimate goal for now is a pocketbook. I need more practice so that is my goal be for next summer. I love to make things and this is a nice addition to my hobbies.
