Quilters become Basket Makers for the Day

I arranged a basket making class for my quilting friends, my bobbin lace teacher and a bobbin lace friend. We had a great day and everyone was so pleased with their baskets that we are arranging another basket making day for next month. Here are a couple of collages showing some of us working and 4 of the completed baskets. Mine is the one with all the beads which is already in use as you can see. Click on the image for a closer view.

I'm taking a shibori dye class with Glennis and that is where my time is being spent today. Check back here later if you want to see some of my results.

these are really good and I can think of a million uses for them...things that don't need to be put in drawers that's for sure. They could be out all the time and constantly admired.
