|I got the great idea to give my friends, Stevie and Connie, a basket making lesson for their birthdays this year. Connie's is in October so we started them then. Stevie's is in December...baskets still not done. Mine is in January and I told them that for my birthday I wanted them to finish their baskets! My birthday is Tuesday and after a couple of months of gentle reminders and a pitiful birthday request, all but the lashing on Stevie's rim is done! Here's the proof...|
|Connie hard at work.|
Next is a little more "artful" display of the finished products.
And then, the best part maybe...Connie's homemade cinnabuns!
I do not care to tell you how many I ate while there. Hey, they were fresh out of the oven! With cold milk. You couldn't have resisted either. But I did manage to bring 2 home and with any luck I will manage to save one for my little husband...
See? I am not going to have trouble finding things to do when I retire. I might have trouble fitting into my pants if Connie and I work together too often, but we'll cross that bridge when the time comes!
Let me know if you want to go berry picking. I have an extra basket!
