A Tisket A Tasket

I've Made My Munchkin's Easter Basket!!!!
I've been dabbling in some very beginning basketry, and I thought I'd give coiled baskets a try. To really achieve a coiled design, you shouldn't be able to see reed/paper that form the coils, they should wrapped fully. But, as I started this project last night and didn't finish until three in the morning (can you say, **snore**) I decided to make the project a little more simple. I like the way it turned out. 
The flowers like it too. There were so many bee's in our garden this morning. I love to see honey bees. That's what my name, Melissa, means. :-)


  1. Very cute. You must have a fair bit of patience to make a basket. Lovely flowers too.

  2. You make me want to be a better man, Um, I mean, crafter. hehehe Wonderful as usual Miss.

  3. Your basket turned out simply beautiful. I only weave with reed. I've never done a coiled basket.
    Happy Easter,
