A gift; and weaving by moi

I had a lovely surprise in the mailbox yesterday - this card and fabric postcard from Carol in the UK.
I really enjoyed working with flax, so I made these little "roses" from the plant I have at home.
This is the square bowl I made at the class - my first attempt at flax weaving. It's on a bit of a funny angle in the photo. It's about 6 inches high.
And here is the basket ("kete" in Maori) I also made but didn't finish in class. I've since finished it at home.

The flowers are lovely Shirley.

I'm just catching up, that weaving looks like fun. And I don't think a mother should be expected to "just get over it' when it comes to losing a child, no matter how long ago it happened! That was a touching post, and very restrained! Hugs!

I love Flax baskets - I notice you have a flax plant in your lovely front garden. Are you going to use that as a resource for future projects?
