My BIG Basket

Today is Mother's Day and I am taking a stroll down memory lane. For me this includes sharing a basket memory.

Nearly 25 years ago a woodworker challenged me to make a basket using two 26" diameter wooden hoops he had made. I accepted the dare and made a huge melon basket.  It was big enough that both of my young children could fit in it.  A reporter wrote an article about my baskets for the local paper and included the family photo below.

I still have my BIG basket.  It is stained a darker brown, but otherwise it doesn't look to have aged at all. (I can't say the same for me!)  

Kate poses with the basket today.
