Merry Christmas, Basket!

Another great basket from Ruth Anne Danger!


This one features a holly pottery basket base she purchased from my MakeABasket.etsy.com shop, as well as a whole string of light bulb beads!



Ruth Anne has a lovely way with coached floating coils, dyed pine needles, and beautifully (deceptively simple-appearing) swirling stitches




I love all the details she puts into these baskets, she constructs them with great love and care...and it is no wonder! This one will take front and center attention at her State Fair!



Ruth Anne writes about her baskets: Our State fair is in Jan. so it is coming soon even tho it is 2011. They ask everyone to enter one Christmas item along with our reg. entries. Then they set up a living room with all the entries from ornaments,quilts, wall hangings,etc.. They are always pleased to have the baskets.
