1. not to discourage you, but you do not have nearly enough willow to make a basket yet. There are some smaller things you migth be able to do. Take a look at my blog and my webpage for ideas.
    There you can also see photos of my harvest 🙂
    Keep up the good work. weaving with willow is so much fun, and can be used for a million purposes.

    • Thanks, Vivian. Yes, I know there’s not enough for a basket, but I may make a little mat! This was only the first year’s harvest. And there will be lots more next year, and the year after that, and so on & so on 😉

    I also am a basket weaver–made my first willow basket last year and loved it!. I normally weave with ash and oak using cherry, walnut and/or oak for handles and rims. Have fun with your willow–it’s beautiful!!

    That black triangle might be your camera’s shutter not fully opening. We bought a used digital camera for $10 and quickly discovered our little “friend”. So now, we just make sure to manually open the shutter all the way, if the camera couldn’t quite make it. And then we merrily click away.

    • Thanks,Elaine. Yes, I discovered that shortly after taking that shot a couple of years ago. I remember to always check now & nudge it if necessary. Thanks!
