Handle Attached

via Instagram

Handle attached to my Nantucket basket. It is perfectly centered thanks to using my Handle Minder to mark the center of the rim. The handle is a tad bit longer than I would like, but it came predrilled. I would have had to wove the basket deeper, but I didn't realize the handle was to swing so far down the side of basket until the rim was already attached.

While this may not seem like a big accomplishment, I can't believe I got a basket finished that I wove while vending at the Missouri Basketweavers Guild Annual Convention. Normally I weave the bodies while demonstrating how to use my weaving stands and then the end up in a pile back home on my work table. I actually completely finished three baskets during the convention (I did still need to apply the polyurethane and wax, but I even got that done too.)
