Here is our latest exchange basket, it is by Deborah Groom, and was received by Donna, in WA.
Deborah had a definite idea for her basket, and executed it exactly as she had envisioned! The center and beads are made of polymer clay.
Deborah said: "I based it on tidal pools... I also tried to imitate the kelp and water action by adding many, many coils. I love the play of colours in the water and they way it slips in and out around the pools. The basket is intentionally asymetrical so I hope Donna likes things that are a little different. It is hard not to correct to a proper circle but I like the randomness of asymetry and find it more in keeping with these pools."
Wow, i think you did exactly what you set out to!
Faux cathedral window throw made from upcycled jeans and dress shirts ran through the wash twice. It has frayed nicely. I’ll be trimming long stings for awhile, but I am super happy with how it turned out. This was a class that I took at @perennialstl if anyone is interested in learning how to make one themselves. . . . #quilt #throw #denim #upcycle #recycle #quilting #singer #singerfeatherweight #featherweight #blog #bluejeans @perennialstl #perennialstl
