Underwater basket weaving

Minus the underwater part.



On our Sunday walk, we passed a huge pile of willow tree branches that had been pruned. I thought I would grab a few and make myself a spring basket. My kids doubted me, it's true. But I had faith, and I prevailed.

I have a new talent--basket making. I could use a little guidance to be sure, but I'm totally happy with my new Easter basket. What do you think? Could this qualify for nesting?

Oh, I also made these recipe card dividers. The most surprising part of all, they are finished.
