I love Baskets. My dad learned how to make split oak baskets from an old man who lived out in the country. He made himself a contraption to split the wood, soaked the pieces and wove the baskets. He had to stop when his arthritis got too bad. Those baskets are treasured in our family now that he is gone. I think that was the way his artistic side was expressed. I'm glad he passed that creativity down to me.
