I took the day off from painting rocks. So, I had to find something else to do. I have lots of baskets that need to be finished. I am never at a loss for things to work on.
This basket has three good sized nuggets of turquoise attached to the front. It will probably go somewhere in Daisy's cottage if I can get it away from Tessie. She is currently trying hard to convince me that Daisy doesn't like baskets...
What you see at the bottom of the photo took several hours. The pattern is one that I did for the Regency room box, years ago.
It is the right size and shape for Daisy's living room.
The pattern is one from a needlework newspaper from Germany. It is from the early 1900s. It may change as I stitch. I like the outer triple border with the leaves. I might put something else in the center. We shall see.
I am still working on a basket for April's cats too. I got a few more rows done since you last saw it.
That is about all I have to report this morning. I am going over to April's place to give her a lesson in basket making.
On the way, I am going to stop at the Mini Time Machine. The only problem is, I am going to have to set a time limit or I will never make it to April's.
Field trip, here I come!
See you tomorrow.
