Back into the baskets...........

.........this past couple of weeks!  I seem to lurch from making baskets to playing with clay - and invariably the baskets keep winning the fight for my time!!

I even remembered the match stick this time!  Just to give a sense of perspective!

The cat is by Annie Willis of Fine Design.  I made the basket just for this cat!

Definitely for the birds!

Some shopping?

Another perspective

Here we are, mid week already!  Peter has gone off to Iraq for a few weeks so I shall definitely be immersing myself in some basket work.  Have to research some new stuff and that is always time consuming!

Some weaving work to show.........

.........that I've not forgotten about the baskets altogether!!

A couple of aged lobster pots!

A gathering basket

A flower basket

 A basket!!

A basket....

....and another basket!

And that's it!!  I could bore you all for hours - but I do have a heart!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend.  Here in Oz, we're all wishing/hoping for some rain.....it is sooo very dry.  Maybe soon!!

Another Step Forward...............

............in the kitchen of Indy's house.  I have completed the chimney at last and now all I have to do is lay the quarry tiles!!  It's ok if you say it quickly.....I think I'm going to be on that job for quite a while but it will be great when finished.   The tiles (from Richard Stacey) will cover both the kitchen and scullery area.

And now totally off topic - I have to show the giant and the squirt!  I can't believe I managed to get the poodle to be still long enough to take the picture!  Score!!

Hope you are all having a wonderful week!
