Basket Making

Here’s one of the reasons I have been absent from the blog this week…I have been weaving!

This week I fulfulled a long-standing promise to a dear friend of mine to teach her what I know of english basketry techniques. The promise could only be kept when my willow stand produced enough willow for two baskets. This was the year!

We wove together all day at my mother’s house while Judah and the girls helped watch our kids. We got the bottome and the sides done, and will get together again to weave the rim and the handle later this month.
