One of the books I borrowed from the library last week was on making your own baskets.  It’s something I’ve wanted to learn how to do for a long time, actually, but I only just took the initiative to get a book that would help me learn how to do it. 

The book is quite interesting, although a lot of the baskets look much too complicated for a complete beginner such as myself.  Some of them look doable, however, so this morning I brought home some kudzu vines which are currently soaking in water to make them more pliable. 

I can’t wait to get started.
