I decided at the end of November to make
baskets for all the grownup women in the family.
I ended up with nine
Days and days of machine stitching
yards and yards of washing line and cloth strips.
And, oh, yes, spool after spool of thread too.
It seems that stones can be of assistance even in basketry!
I had to get used to using a sewing machine again!
It has been quite a while.
I have to say I really enjoyed making useful things.
As I stitched it came to me that the little munchkins
would also like a basket
just like their mom.
One day I got a last minute request for oven mitts for Ashley.
Ended up making some for Stevie too.
At eighteen months old she wants everything her big sister gets.
I have found their baskets very useful
might make myself some in the new year
to hold threads and scraps.
Hope everyone finds a use for their basket.
Loved making them.
