The Web of Time and Space

I started this basket in April 2012 while still in Florida. It is my first attempt at a Tennerife Lace which I decorated with moonstone and dyed jade beads. I treated these needles with a Glycerin bath, baked in the oven for several hours which darkens the needles and preserves them. I used Crawford's Waxed Linen Thread from Ireland. I finished this basket today, Sun. July 22, 2012.

I named the basket, "The Web of Space and Time" which is about the free flow of choosing freedom of positive intent.


  1. Gorgeous, Melissa. Gardening has overwhelmed basketry. I did get my 18 gauge wire, though, so I'm ready to continue on with basket 2.

  2. The same thing happened to me. Cooking and Gardening...a little boatong and beekeeping. I want to get back into the baskets though and I have just started a new one. Thanks for the comment!
