Retirement gift…

Karen Lawrence Basketry

Last week I made this square basket. It was commissioned by a group of teachers as a retirement gift for a colleague.

Lots of elements to this basket, including the grab handles, domed lid, partitions inside and the fun of whittling a hazel peg for the top closure.

It went off to its new home today. I’m looking forward to seeing it full of lovely things. It’s due to be used as a sewing basket.
