what a beautiful basket. i just love handmade baskets. i like the way you have captured the weaving and the light signing through.
i remember you saying you made pinestraw baskets, but did you make this one too?

Oh to be able to craft something so beautiful! A nearly lost art! Wonderful texture and abstraction captured here ...

Such beautiful weaving and great angles :)

Oh wow, did you do this yourself?
I love your photos of the weaving--especially the first one, I like the focus you captured.

You made this yourself?

Ok, I read through the comments and figured out that you did not make it but as creative and crafty as you are it was easy for me to think you did make it.

Oh, I love your photos of this pretty basket! Each image is different than the others, but all are beautiful!

What a lovely handmade basket! Oh and just wanted you to know that I too was gray and red now I'm a light brown with blondish highlights(and just a whiff of gray). The hair was a birthday present to the hubby who thought my hair made him look old.

What a beautiful basket and your creative shots show it off to perfection. I especially love that first one. Well done, ELK!

Elk! Thanks for stopping by and visiting, I'm so sorry I've not been good at visiting my blog-friends! And so silly of me too, as you have SO MANY beautiful images lately! Love 2/26, 2/24 and 2/23.

Time for me to turn in and start all over tomorrow!

This is incredible! I'm intimidated by basket weaving... I made a wreath once, that was a challenge. But so rewarding and LOTS of fun! Especially because i was working with friends. Well done, here!
