Unfinished Projects


via Instagram

You would think with all this time being stuck at home I could finish some of these Nantucket baskets. Sad thing is I can't even remember how old some of these are. I would bet that there are some a good 10 years old, if not older.

Another Recent Basket

Here’s another basket I recently wove using space-dyed reed. This one’s a 10” Shaker-style cat-head basket.

Happy Easter

I’m not putting out too many decorations this year, but just received these two incredibly cute bunny cutouts so it was easier to put them out than put them away.

A little isolation crafting


via Instagram

Started these on my first day of social distancing/working from home last week and finally had a chance (and was in the mood) to finish them up.
