It's time for a GIVEAWAY!  

A Primitive Painted Easter Basket with dried Prairie Grass and 3 egg gourds

Which you can also empty and use as a little peg hanger basket.  

To enter for my giveaway:
- Just be a follower of this blog 
-leave a comment on this post

That's it!

If you do want to post this on your own blog, leave me a second comment letting me know and I'll give you another entry.  

Due to the grass and dried gourds this is open to US residents only - I don't want to get into trouble with customs for shipping plants out of this country.  

I'll draw a name on March 5 - two weeks from today.  

If you really want this basket and can't wait to see if you win, there is an identical one in my etsy shop HERE.

You can also see a more detailed description of the basket by clicking on the link above.

I've been weaving!

A lull in my Mom schedule gave me the opportunity to weave a little over the weekend. 

Painted Peg Basket

Painted Market Basket with Wool Label - Medium 
~~~Sold ~~~Thank you P!
 Painted Market Basket with Wool Label - Smaller Version

 Americana "Hide the Utensils" Basket

Special order - Shaker Cat Head Basket - Thank you Peggy!


Have to share this funny with you - our daughter calls me to her room to look at the "spoiled cat".  Yes, he is spoiled, you can see she's lined the basket with a nice fleece throw to make sure he's comfy.  
She's spoiled too - I made this basket for me!  I had felted wool stored in this basket when she commented on it, telling me how much she liked it.  It now resides in spoiled child's room to hold the more spoiled Graybinator.  

Happy President's Day!
