The acrylic base in this basket is made with one of mom's brazillian agates. I made 20 of them or so for my basket guild. I used dyed reed with a continuous weave base and a woven rim. Everyone's baskets turned out really nicely.
I finished the long arming on Easy Street this afternoon too, so will bind tomorrow and take photos this week. It turned out well and that is good because I want to hang it in my guild quilt show in April. I have also spent several hours hand quilting this weekend. The vacuuming did not get done...no time, hmmm. Wonder why?
