I have always wanted to learn how to make a basket like that! I can't wait!

Suzanne Duda

I am looking forward to taking one or both of your classes this year {fingers crossed at registration tomorrow}..and yes, I too love Omaha in November!


Oh Charlotte, I would so love to take a class. But.... mmmm. Omaha? "It's a long way to Tipperary" too, but I hope to see you in classes before going quite THAT far.

Thanks for the heads up!
Love that Nana's Basket.
Candace, Still in Athens.


I love the Nana's basket.
My mother had something similar in the 60's which she called her Bridie Box. Her best friend Bridget gave it to her as a wedding present, and she kept her sewing threads in it.
Sadly I don't know what happened to it.
So lovely!
...and I would love to come too...but it's a long way from Australia:(
