A Tisket, A Tasket.....

I decided this morning I needed to turn this

into a Halloween basket for my daughter. Because I have a) no (crafting) impulse control & b) no ability to realistically estimate how long something will take to make (in spite of the fact that I have made baskets before), I went on ahead & did so.

I like him :) More importantly, my daughter likes him. This is the first time I've used a premade form instead of making my own slats or sides & bottoms so there's definitely room for improvement. Still, I have somewhere around 20 more buckets that need fabricatized (it could be a real word). By the time I finish the last one, I should be nigh on perfect at this :)
