Making baskets is addictive. I had a bit more time before dinner, and began wrapping selvedges again. After dinner, and the clean-up, we were heading out to help a friend pick up some book cases, but they were not available until 8pm, so I continued to wrap.
This morning, I prepared dough for 2 loaves of bread, and then stitched the basket.
This one finished 5 1/2 inches across the bottom, and 9 1/2 inches across the top. It is a bit taller than the turqoise one I showed yesterday. I just wrapped until I covered all the remaining clothesline in the hank.
I used a variegated thread with light gray-purple and green colours for the stitching. This time, I stopped and stitched a coil with the last few inches of the piece, then continued to stitch, reinforcing the final area. I also like to stitch once around the upper edge, as I like the finished look it provides.
This afternoon I have to get all my items organized for the boutique at the upcoming quilt show. Somewhere I have to find the time to get them to the appropriate people!
