Just finished this basket for a bride who is going to paint her new kitchen (when the house is built) in greens.

That is the sort of gift I love to receive. It's not about status & money, it's time & thought.

Passed this place a couple of weeks ago enroute to visit OH colleague who has Alpacas :grin:

I picked up one of his flyers last year thinking the wood carving would be a good pressie for OH but forgot all about it and didn't realise they did basket weaving too =D>

Thanks Jaydee for the links
