November is here and it is time to count our blessings. Being part of an active basket weaving guild is one of mine. Today I spent an enjoyable Saturday morning weaving the casserole size basket shown above with members of the Central Pennsylvania Basketweavers Guild. Guild member Joanne Sheriff lead the work session.
The leather handles were not woven into the sides. They are held in place between the outer and inner rim.
Once the basket was complete, I painted the words and
leaves with paint. A poly wood finish was then
applied to seal the base.
