I finally ordered a kit for myself and made it the other day! I was quite pleased with the outcome. It’s adorable and I love it! This will be on my table from now on at shows and demos. I want to make a 10″ pack basket for myself and carry as a purse one day soon. The splints are much heavier and harder to come by as well. I can dream though…
A fellow artist had a fire this past winter and this piece went as a donation piece to help him and his partner. I was more than willing to help out a fellow artist in the time of need. The sun was bright this day and I was in the wood line near my house, some shadows but I wanted to share this piece. It has now gone on to its new home.
I had a presentation at the Seneca-Iroquois National Museum this past weekend. Where I was part of the Living Artists Day – we had a terrific turnout with visitors from near and far stopping by to say hello and to learn more about our culture. I was more than willing to share my passion and through art I have been able to educate folks from every age range. It was a very busy time but I also managed to finish a basket and begin another one! This is one of the baskets that I will be teaching at the SINM in March. It’s a mini market basket and it’s cute! Always creating. Be back soon with more photos.
Things never go as you plan. So, again I will try to make a better effort on my pages.
Here is a mini tote – my granddaughter names them for me – totey tote! And Hattie Hats!
She made her first basket last year! I was so proud of her!
I made this totey tote this winter. I think cabin fever is setting in and I need to get out. I’ve been busy with beadwork lately as it’s not as hard on my hands/forearms. All is well here in my corner of the world. Going to keep making baskets as long as I can. I will post those works shortly as well. Stay frosty. I mean Toasty!
