My sweet niece A. was sweet fourteen.
I thought she might like to have a little basket To Put Things In.
I made sure I was up to date on the décor of her room – a good thing, because it turned out there’d been recent changes in the color scheme: Purple and green now set the tone.
I wanted the basket to be floral and… Sweet!
I remembered seeing something really cute from an artist I liked a while back…
At the time I was just starting out with fabric crochet and I remember thinking, How…???
The image, and the question, lingered in my mind.
A couple of years and a zillion baskets later, I was able to weave the inspiration into my own creation:
I think (hope?) A. liked it.
I took a minute during A.’s party to take some pictures of the basket. Isn’t the spot just perfect?
