At last ........a potato basket!

I have been mulling over how to best tackle this basket in miniature for a good year now.  I had to be sure that all the weaving was tight and even across the board and I managed to do it in the end.  I still have a little bit of "tweaking" to do but over all - I am happy with the result.  What do you think?
I shouldn't really ask!!  But what do you think?!

Hope you are all keeping well!  Until next time.


  1. I think it is one of the most beautiful baskets you have ever made. OMG! I can't even imagine how you worked out how to do it. Plus have all the weaving so even and tight. I ADORE IT!!!! Well done Lidi!!!!!!! :-)))

  2. It's fabulous. I love it. I have never seen a potato basket but I'd love one in full size and miniature.

  3. Well for what it is worth, I think it is fantastic. If only my real life potatoes could live in something so magnificent.

  4. Wow! It's really a good job, so perfect and realistic! Congratulations, you've got wonderful hands. Hugs . Arantxa

  5. Being Irish I have a deep affinity with potatoes and this basket is a fabulous way to store them perfectly. Keep them cool and dark as they like!! Once again I want not just this miniature one but also one in 1:1 scale. You are so inventive in your projects and ideas and the workmanship is beautiful. Thank you for elevating the potato to being part of this artwork :;)

  6. Beautiful, perfect potato basket, Lidi!
    Have a nice weekend! Hugs, Ilona

  7. Hi Lidi, I have not seen a potato basket before. Have you seen one in real size, or just a photograph. What is their origins?
    Wonderful work.

    1. I haven't seen a potato basket in the flesh Janine - only pics o. The web and in various books. I would really love one in real size!!

  8. Lidi! I am very glad that you asked what I think, because of course IT IS Simply FABULOUS!!!
    Your work is always of the highest caliber and every basket that you have done, makes my eyes bug out and my jaw drop in wonder, and this potato basket is no exception. It is Beautiful!
