[OK, migraine is still present, but overwhelming feeling of hopelessness is past. Life goes on, even in a supremely messy house!]
One of the funnest (according to spell-check, that’s not a word) things I did at Family Camp this year was making a basket. Every year, one of the camp staffers offers a basket class that takes an entire day. Until last year, I wasn’t interested because I was too busy with nature classes and other stuff. Last year, Sandy didn’t offer the class because she was getting ready for one of her kids’ weddings (as I recall). But, this year, the class was offered again, and Rosie Girl asked if we could take it together. How could I turn that down?? And, Grandma wanted to take it with us.
We started by making the bottom of the basket. Not too hard so far!
Now the fun part – making the sides!
And adding the color!
They’re all the same, but a little different!
So, that’s it! Our basket-weaving adventure for 2009! I think I’ll be using mine to carry books and knitting around when I’m shuttling the kids to piano and dance.
