Basket base completed

I want one of these bodkins

Lucy took this without me knowing, I'm glad she did.

Once I started making the sides it went pretty fast.

Our finished baskets

Lucy and I had a wonderful day at Black Swan Arts in Frome learning basket making from Rebecca Board. So much to say about it all, but i'm so sleepy now and need to get ready for my parents Ruby Wedding party tomorrow, in the meantime you can look at the photos!

It cost us £30 for a day course, which was money very well spent as far as I was concerned- well worth looking out for something near to you!
