A Fun Day At Basket Weaving

Now that Christmas has past, I am looking through photos and reflecting on a fun day of basket weaving with the gals of Tightly Basketry Guild of the NRV. We had a great day weaving darling little ornaments.

Special thanks to our fearless leader, Deezie Nelson, for weaving an ornament for all of us!

I made this one and the other two.

I have always wanted to put a yoyo and button on a basket. I think it turned out cute!

A fun day was enjoyed by all weavers!
