wow, I can't believe this old post came up. Thank you all for the kind comments.
LenaB - with these minis it's not the hands that hurt, it's the eyes! I can only work on them about an hour a day.
Zabedoll, I'm always experimenting with what I refer to as 'naturals'... things from my garden. I've woven with things like daylily and iris leaves, cattail leaves, honeysuckle vine, grapevine, willow, etc. It's all fun. I planted my own basketry willow in 2010 -- tough work but worth it in the end.
I took up painting again right after I started this post, so I haven't made many baskets over that time. I did just finish these two -- an egg basket for my sister and a scraps basket as a gift for someone who I just met that admired my tote basket. lol!
Again, no matter how I rotate the image it always displays upside-down. Sorry.
