Stress Relief... well that's what it's supposed to be!

So my mom sent me a nice surprise for my birthday! Basket weaving supplies!!! While baskets are big in Ukraine I have been unable as of yet to find a place to purchase the reed here. So thanks to Mom I am able to for the first time in 8 months let my creative juices flow into the reed. I decided to try a new kind of basket called a twill weave basket. It was quite a challenge and despite the mutterings of wrath that sometimes escape I had fun trying my hand at this technique. I have not completed the basket yet, but will post completed pics soon!
