5 1/2 Days of Basket Bliss!

Okay, Mr. Basketmaker’s 5 1/2 days of his first full-week workshop in Tennessee was probably not all blissful…

Like when he came into the weaving area and announced “I got to use my First Aid Kit for the first time… Amy drilled her finger!”

I have to admit, my instant reaction was slight panic…. a student is injured? Drilled through her finger? Shall I grab some ice? Do I call 911? But Eric’s grin tipped me off that it was not so serious…

I headed into the shop to see for myself. Here’s Miss Amy holding up her left index finger with a bandaid. I’m sure it hurt and probably stung a little too so that experience most likely not so blissful.

Mr. Basketmaker continues to be very proud that he was able to come to the rescue with his fancy First Aid Kit… he seems to be in total bliss…


And Amy displaying that delightful smile, I think she’s going to be quite okay.

In the other room, Mark was getting his straps on the creel basket…


I’m thinking he was also a little “blissful” himself because he started on another basket but moved it out to the front porch…

Kay, Ginger and Chance also made it out to the workshop’s porch to enjoy the sunny and peaceful day…


After taking a break, Ginger was back in the house weaving alongside Marcia…

Speaking of Marcia… she was a very busy weaver. She created three baskets during the 5 1/2 day workshop….



Here’s JoAnn tucked around the corner at Eric’s workstation sanding her parts (sorry for the quality… took this one with my phone)…


And here’s Miss Kay with her completed basket and a blissful smile I might add. I believe this is her third ever basket made. It looks gorgeous… 
Here’s the last day of the workshop with everyone’s completed baskets…. and being photobombed by Jaxson…


I was very impressed with all the creations!! Thanks Marcia, Ginger, Kay, JoAnn, Mark and Amy for a fun week with y’all. Hope you come back again!
