The basket now has the beginnings of walls. I would have liked to spend more time on it, but it'll come. Something about making these is calming, even with the physical tension of squeezing/shaping/pulling required to build it. I have enough materials remaining after this to make two more baskets, possibly for show sales.
Just thought of something: a small and shallow house-shaped basket, turned on its side, for a 3-dimensional project! Okay, hard to describe... I'll just have to make it.
