Basketmaker, Ruth


This woman is just amazing, I tell ya.  Look at these baskets!

I recently visited my friend Ruth Swan.  Isn't she cute?  (We surprised her with a visit one weekend)  She is a very lovely lady with a talent for making baskets. 

She has such variety in her work!

Ruth described some of the types of baskets for me and informed me of some of the wood types needed. 

She makes great use of her baskets also.  They are hanging as decor on the walls, pen holders, magazine holders, everything!

Best of all, she surprised me with the gift of a basket!  An egg basket!

Oh and don't worry, there will be more on this soon...
