A basket completed

Our informal basketry group has started meeting again, once a month at the Denman Island Arts Centre.
I have not made a basket in a long time, so I started small and used commercially made seagrass for the weaving.
Next basket I will make my own cordage as I was wont to do in the past. I think that the handles are made from some willow that Marilyn gave me last fall that I let dry wound in a circle in a bucket, to get that nice uniform shape.
