Basket again

Ok, I'm a basket maniac! At last I bought a book about basketry to learn the appropriate weaving techiques. Now I know how to make the different borders. But I have to practice a lot!
And I use wires I paint after weaving with the shades of brown and yellow. The weaving is not too even, but I like the result. 
On the last photo there is a basket, too, somewhere under the napkin. But the point is the content of the basket, tiny scones not more than 5mm in diameter.





And I have many many new followers I haven't welcome yet. Sorry, now I haven't flowers in my garden for you, but I'm very happy you are interested in my works.

Your baskets are excellent, and perfect to display your amazing minis!
So clever! I have tried basketwork, but every time it was thrown in the rubbish bin :)

Your baskets look so nice! I have tried basket weaving and I find the border making part very difficult.

You make beautiful baskets! I try to make some baskets, but I also find the borders to be difficult. I also like your bejgli! The walnut ones are my favorite.

Ahora con tus propios cestos. Estan muy bien trabajados. No parecen sencillos. Me encantan.
Tus alimentos siempre me alegran la vista. Un placer.
