In the meantime, I've spent the last few hours cutting out the strips for the plaited basket and trying to assemble it.
Those who know me know that spacial perception is not my strong suit. This basket is proving it. I have half a mind to put up a photo of it in its current state just for giggles but somewhere in there my pride just won't let me do it. LOL I think if I had better step by step instructions rather than an ad laden 3 page article that I'm trying to decipher, I'd have gotten farther by now. Maybe not. If Katy puts hers together before me, I'll know it was me and not the directions.
Remember the old saying that when you went "loopy" you studied basket weaving? I'm thinking that basket weaving may MAKE you go loopy.
Basketweaving - maybe not my forte. We shall see.
Woodworking - not even close to being my forte but more on that later.
