Notes on Wee Blue & Green Basket:
Originally intended as a birthday present for my brother-in-law whose favorite colors (according to his wife) were blues and greens, this basket had somewhat decided its own path during the course of making it over a solid 4.5 days and about 40 hours to finish it in time to mail. However, in the end, critiques from the peanut gallery persuaded me to think that it just “wasn’t him.” Thus, he did not receive this basket after all (but did receive a more “appropriate” one a little late)!
