This is a beautiful frame basket. Well done. Basket making is not as easy as some people would have you believe. The colours are awesome.

If anyone is looking for a basket weaving course in the South East I can thoroughly recommend Alan Sage (AJS crafts) who teaches in Ashford. I have done many of his courses and he is an excellent teacher.

Sorry it's not a particularly good photo - all the others were fuzzy :roll:

It needs trimming a bit more but we were told to wait until a few days to let it dry out fully.

And no, I won't be harvesting lemons!


Does this mean your now the forums very own "Truglodyte"................ :lol: :lol: :lol:

Cheeky!

I used it for the first time on Thursday (having rescued it from the cats). I picked 2lb of self-set mustard from the polytunnel! Homemade ricotta and mustard (no spinach yet) lasagne! Fabulous.

I must update my thread on cheesemaking.
