Living in Alaska???
Yes. That is snow...It came down in about a half hour time period. It was snowing hard for Tucson.
It even managed to stop the pro golf tournament up at Dove Mountain. Walter was out there and still didn't get home until five or so. Someone gave him a pass to the fancy "party tent". He had a great time. Even without benefit of golf.
This morning, Tessie got her first taste of snow. She insisted upon building a snowman....She got as far as the small ball that you see at her feet.
Then she started shivering and zapped herself out of there. She was barefoot, after all... All I heard before she disappeared was, "This is not fit for human beings or witches!!! I'm out of here!!!".
Here you see the four steps for starting a twined basket.
You can do them on strips of poster board like this, or on wire, stuck into the bottom. The poster board can be stained with wood stain or painted.
I used Woodsies for the base. I cut the poster board, the cheapest I could find. It's softer than the good stuff and bends easily. I cut it in about 1/8" strips and glued pieces to the edge of the woodsie. Then I used my thumb nail to curl a strip to glue around the bottom.
I guess I will go back and finish the baskets...It's not as much fun when Tessie ignores both Zar and me.
Please, don't forget to go back to the top and vote for Tessie! Maybe she will forgive me for sticking her feet in the snow....Maybe....Probably not...
See you tomorrow.
