The gap left by sewing has been mostly been filled with catching up on work, however it turns out that a ninth wedding anniversary is represented by Willow, and having decided that giving me a wicker laundry basket would not be diplomatic my lovely husband sent me on a basket-making course.
|It looks wonky because it has a decorative spiral running through the weaving! Just wanted you to know:-)|
It was such a fun thing to do so if you have the opportunity near you I can highly recommend it. This was what we made, using willow from Somerset, and for the whole day I didn't once think about ill children, work pressures, defunct sewing machines or anything else other than basket weaving.
Linking up to to the inspiring New to Me in 2013 and looking forward to seeing what everyone else has been up to.
