Sharing - Sally

Sally inherited Karin's linen spiral about time. Sally had linen fabric to work with, stitched with phrases and words, some stones with text, leaves and a large shell. She chose to take the linen and rip it into strips that she then coiled around wire to create a basketry material -- it's the small cord going around the outside and is also inside the basket. She painted the stones black with one gold one and I think she said the actual basket was made from painted paper. I think it's a very pretty and intriguing basket, but I may be reacting to the color as much as anything else. I'm becoming more interested in basketry the more of Sally's work I'm see, maybe I should take a basketry class.
