Working On Orders

I have to get some things done. But luckily, they (the customers) are in no hurry and are easy going — so, I’m not slacking. This is the layout for the beginning of my basket and the progress so far. I’ve got 2 others to do and with Spring in the Air, working my splints outside is going to be great! More soon.

National Museum of the American Indian in Washington DC

Took a tour of the National Museum of the American Indian in D.C. this past weekend, we happened to come on a week they were recognizing the Cherokee Nation. So, we got to see a few artists and crafters from that Nation, of course I took note of the basket makers. Asked a few questions while I could bend their ear – they use the white oak tree and wished we had more time to visit but being on a time table I couldn’t stay long. Just wanted to share a photo of their beautiful baskets. Always learning…
