Gretchen Memorial Baskets and Wreaths

As I continue with this basket work I am reminded of how when I do something for several hours a day, I start to get better at that activity. Immediately humbled, by people who make baskets for a living, I liken it to playing any musical instrument and find that there is Peace to be had, making baskets. The process forces mindfulness of the stresses in the wood and in my hands and I started using a different method of weaving which produces better results with less strain on my hands and much improved result. Therapeutic to say the least.
