Created at the request of a friend, this basket grew too big too fast (for its intended purpose), and so, it was back to the drawing board for me. It was a good lesson re: fulfilling commission-type orders… they are not so easy, since every basket seems to decide for itself what it will become, despite well thought out plans! Surely someone, somewhere, will like it someday?
