Well, we had a massive wind storm, which knocked out power for most of the day. Thankfully ours came on by evening, but many areas will be out for a couple of days, it sounds like!
So, it was a good time to finish my pine needle basket from Basket Day last weekend! Apollo is helping model the basket for me! Our class learned how to create stitching around the stone, so that the pine needles could be sewn to it for the base. The teacher supplied these beautiful stone slabs - this one is a lace agate. It is my first pine needle basket, and it wasn't as bad as I had anticipated. I'm very happy with how it turned out!
