The two-video basket

That sounds kind of strange.

After doing my demonstration speech on basketmaking, I got inspired to continue. The somewhat large basket that was left waiting while I practiced for my informative speech (on chocolate, no less!) is now finished. I "listen" to videos while I work on projects and that basket took two Star Wars videos to complete. (I actually "listened" to all five Star Wars videos, but that's another story.)

Last night I stained five of my baskets and hung them in the garage to dry. I would have stained six but my can of stain ran out....I now have a new can.

I'm not particularly happy with the shape of the really big basket. I used the wrong reed for ribs and it isn't as nicely rounded as I would like but that's OK. I have another underway this evening that is exactly like I want it!

The baskets went outside today to air and finish drying...they looked really neat bouncing around on their clothesline in the breeze and Gwen took some pictures so now I have some photos to spice up my blog.

wow! i am seriously impressed. not only do i myself like your baskets--but my own mom has been known to spend indecent sums of money on similar ones. i think one was an antique, or something, so it's not exactly the same thing; but anyway, they're pretty! :o)
