Thank you, everyone, for such nice comments on my baskets. kissie

I've been making baskets about 5 years. There is a wonderful lady here who has lessons in her home about twice a month and I go when ever I can. I can get supplies for her and on the internet. Going to class "gets me out of the house". lol lol

I don't make as many as I used to but I try to make each one using a a little more difficult pattern than the last one.

Thanks again for the comments

Barb, no worries---I knew you were joking. kissie

The basket is actually blue but it's a blue that sort of goes with green....it's a greenish looking blue to me.

I better say that the baskets I make are made of a natural reed which is the inner part of a tree. If a basket gets wet, and stays wet or damp, it may mold and eventually rot.

I know more than one person here has put a plant in the basket's I've made and I just urge anyone who does to be very carefull.

Thanks.

Loz are you listening to that story......
You ought to use the basket for dryness..............Like storing your towels in it .

I will, this was just a temporary set up...but I not only have a towel in the bottom but I also have them in trays(even though there's no drainage holes in the bottom of the pots)....there's no way the basket will ever get wet. thumbup I would never take a risk like that.

When I redo the living room for the holidays I'll do something else with the basket, it just looks so pretty there with the greenery.
