Aside

Definitely deedy handiwork

As you can see from my friend’s doll’s house work, Isla has always had a good eye, steady hands and an inexhaustible amount of concentration.

About 20 years ago, she decided to go on a 3 day basket weaving course.  These are some of the items she subsequently made (not sure which were made on the course – perhaps all of them)

Egg basket of willow - note change in weave and fancy edges

Lovely shape to bottom of egg basket

Doll's Moses Basket with discreat increase in height for head end - sort of a gusset in cane

Great even plaited edging!
