Yesterday was a foggy, drizzly day. Not a day for battling the salmonberry bushes if you had any regard for your physical well-being. The fish is all up in the drying house, with heat and fans on it (note: fog=no wind) so that it will continue to dry and not spoil. So…what to do. Not clean house! It was Saturday, so no grandson to watch – although he did end up spending the night! Instead of making chocolates, Mom and Diane shamed me into working on a project I started at least 4 weeks ago.
You can see my basket start, which will be used on the pouch, as well as my mock up. Diane and Mom have already finished theirs, basically, so yesterday Diane was working on a wild rye grass basket that she is ready to start the turning stich on.
Diane was commenting, that no matter how many baskets she makes, she always drags out the Svarny-girl bible…Aleut Basket Weaving, or Sophie’s book, when it comes time to turning.
Mom was forced to get out the graph paper to work on her blueberry design for the basket she is weaving. She hates to do graph work, although not as much as Diane. Diane says she needs to do more planning and design work – but it just ain’t gonna happen!! As you can see, Mom decided that piano work was a bit more interesting than anything else!
We will get it together. There is just so much else to do, though.
