Exchange Basket Received: Pamela Caskey to Leigh Adams
This great basket was made by Pam Caskey and received by Leigh Adams. Here's what Leigh had to say about it:
Pamela sent me a luscious smelling basket that is a veritable wonderland of dancing stitches, jubilant color and joyful design. Centered on a lovely agate are ripples of closed coil and natural pineneedles flowing upward into lace captured walnut slices and glowing with radiant color! The stitching is firm and well spaced, creating a firm and sturdy basket. The sides move upwards with different colors of waxed nylon in a feather stitch and with
additional closed coils of pine. The uppermost section of the basket is created with fragrant sweet grass and a very clever use of walnut slices as handles integrated into the basket. The overall piece is pleasing and colorful and will be a most lovely addition to my collection.
Thank you Pam Caskey!
Another great basket! What a wonderful exchange we are having!
