LOVELY FOGGY MORN
This is what awaited me this morning. What a lovely sight.
Here are a few of my baskets that my sister has.
This grapevine handled small basket was woven with cream colored corduroy material, jute and dyed reed. I love how each grapevine handle can look differently. On the potato basket, I dyed the reed in walnut hulls and dark green Ritz dye. The ribs of both baskets are made with creek bank willow.
The large potato basket is made from reed, scraped willow bark and willow ribs and rim. I put handles on this one, but (oops) the dog chewed one side off. I will have to put some time in on repairs, it's looking kind of loose and worn. The small egg basket is woven with sea grass, dyed reed and pansy fabric, with a grapevine handle.
This small unique basket has willow ribs, barbed wire handle and woven with torn denim jeans. One of my favorites! I made sure that the barbs were spaced apart in the center so your hand would not get stabbed!
I'm still working on it! Here are the wool cut up for the braided rug: blue, red, green, tan and plaids. The rug is starting to take shape and looks good.
More on it later and I added a...
Ok, so I added one more task to my list. My sister, (I talk about my sister a lot, but I do have 3 brothers too!) needed some pillows to match a rocking chair seat that she recovered. Glad to do it for her.
Old pillows and new fabric. They're going to look good!
