And when I say “a few hours” it really is for a few hours.
Part of my job description as the Basketmaker’s Wife involves helping Eric with his patterns for exhibit baskets. (Exhibit baskets are special. For his other baskets, he’s on his own…)
He creates preliminary sketches on grid paper and then I electronically reproduce all into one drawing. Then Eric is able to make changes on my computer. And when I say “changes on my computer” that means him sitting next to me, looking over my shoulder, telling me what square to move where.
I know what you’re asking, “Lynne, how can you calmly (y’all are assuming with the word ‘calmly’) sit there and move around a bunch of squares. That must be grueling.”
All I can say is that I gladly do it with no complaints, mind you… as long as my glass of wine is refreshed without me even asking.
