I spent almost all day working on this basket. It is a slow process. Got through several episodes of Orphan Black. I am varying the sinew color and the the pine needles, light, dark and so on. I have include some of the trumpet vine branches and a thin piece of bamboo periodically to add strength. Also adding in some bits of color with raffia and embroidery thread ( and the gold and bronze metallic threads…it gets pretty tangled up after awhile)that I carry along side my tube with the needles.
I haven’t quite decided what the ultimate shape is going to be but I do want to add some dangly trinkets. I have beads and metallic shapes ( birds, scissors, frogs, elephants, bells.)…haven’t decided. I have to ask the basket what it wants. Sounds weird but it works. The basket talks.
