but not necessarily on the things I should be!! I can get sooooo distracted doing what I love - making baskets!
So here are a few I have been working on.
A key basket (wall basket) made on a cane frame with cane stakes.
A medieval style bird cage - just the right size to hold a blackbird -
in 1:12th scale of course!!
Or maybe I just needed a challenge!
The little basket in 1:24th scale is made exactly like a real basket - it has 3 rod whale on the base, worked in reverse twining for the main body, topped with a 3 rod whale accent. It is finished with a commercial border and follow-on trac and that is where I had to succumb to a magnifier as I just couldn't see where to put the fine thread!
The best part of this project was declaring it finished!!
