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.

And a bit more.........

This took days of "fiddle" - firstly to get the basket right and then to get the birds inside!!!  Aren't the peach faces just gorgeous - made by Audrey Hughes, New Zealand.

Just for fun!

Not long now and New Zealand here I come!

Hope everyone is keeping well.

Been quiet......but productive!

I have been busy getting myself organised for NZAME Convention, being held in Nelson, New Zealand 24-27 October.  It will be so nice to be back in Nelson - happy times, happy times!
Anyway, I have been doing some work in an effort to build up a stash of baskets and here are a few for you to look at.....

A selection of flower baskets - fun!

Flat based picnic hamper - lidded of course!

A bird carrier.

Eel traps - don't make too many of these - too stressful!!!

I was looking through my older posts to see when my last give away was - too long ago I think.  When I get back from New Zealand I will have a giveaway for all my followers.  Maybe a couple of flower baskets?  What do you think?  I just think they're pretty and would look gorgeous filled!

I hope you are all keeping well.  For those in the northern climes - back towards winter for you - but over here the weather has warmed up with a vengence and we're off and running into what I feel might be a long hot summer.

Take care everyone!
