whimsy basket

Well, I probably should be getting ready for the Southwest Regional Alpaca Show in two weeks. Instead I’ve been happily spinning yarn and setting up a new Etsy shop ( I’ve also been filling in odd hours when I’m watching TV or waiting in line by working on coiled baskets. I have a few Indian baskets that have been decorating the shelves around the house. I happened to knock one down one day and started looking at it. I thought, what the heck, I could try doing this. A couple of my creations are now on the Etsy site, and you’ll see I quickly moved away from the traditional Native American motif. The last one I did, was sold before I ever finished it, but I did get some photos before it went to its new home.
