Yah it’s May! Done with April Showers, now bring on the flowers!
The Cottage Girls’ Calendar page for the month of May is Kathy Weiss.
When I saw this pretty basket, I knew exactly where I wanted to hang it and the angle of the shot. Just needed to wait for the late afternoon sun and it was just about perfect.
I forgot to post April’s calendar page! I wanted to post it on Eric’s birthday. How I overlooked this is beyond me, especially since his baskets are featured on the page. Not a good Basketmaker’s Wife at all! LOL. (Sorry Eric!)
So April’s Calendar Girl is Miss Suzanne of the Basket Cottage. It features Eric’s miniatures and smalls. Most were woven by Suzanne and some woven by Mr. Basketmaker himself.
Y’all enjoy the last few days of April.
Tracey Reidy, Sandy Beaulieu, Hannah Sommer and Suzanne Marvin.
There’s always too many great creations to feature in only 12 months, so for one page, I like to group several together. This year it is the page for March.
There’s also a special honor for Sandy Beaulieu who is a scrimshaw artist at D.E.L.S. on Cape Cod. Many of the cottage girls commission works from her so I wanted to have something of hers in one of the calendars. Her beautiful mermaid ocean scene lid was perfect.
(Note: Hannah Sommer chose to show baskets that were made for her by Jim Kent)
