A Tisket A Tasket..
Can you believe I made this basket?
One of the activities my Mom had planned for us while I was visiting was to take a Blueberry Basket making class through the local community ed program.
Just to document the process for the non-believers(no one could believe we made the baskets!) I took several pictures of the process.
Here is how the basket looks when you are just starting out. Take a look at Mom's girly tools with all the flowers-click to enlarge the pic!
Here's where we were "braiding" three strands and adding the blueberries.
This was about 3 hours(the weaving takes a lot longer than you think!) in to the project and we were getting tired! It's a lot more labor intensive that we thought. It didn't help we did the whole process in one sitting...and after a full day of shopping!
Here's everyone from the class along with our instructor-Sharon...4 hours later with our completed baskets!
Although we were exhausted after our long day-both Mom and I thought we'd try another basket class next summer!
