A basket!

After a long hiatus, our basket making group has been meeting again, once a month at the Arts Centre. Fun to be making a basket again!
This one is very free form, with a willow frame. I used up scraps of reed and paper rush and other bits and bobs. Amazingly, the basket stands up straight - that was definitely luck.
