Basket weaving, it's not just for hippies anymore
02 April 2009
Dan, hold on to your hat - Wayne, please be sitting down - yes, Bessie, your little gun-toting right wing friend has now taken up weaving baskets from palm fronds.
Let me explain, it's all Gail's fault. You see, she wanted a hat from the straw market. So last year we bought her one. But it didn't cut it - apparently it was too frou-frou or something.
So this year I sent her pix from the straw market. No go, nothing was good enough. According to Gail, she needed something more quote-unquote rustic.
What the hairy?!?!
So I had to learn to weave.
Here are my first few projects. We hope that Gail finds them rustic enough. Why do we induldge her brattiness? We don't really know - I guess she just scares us a little.
