Did you have a yarnful week?
It began with an old basket, which was left in a heap of logs by someone who lived in our house before us. Mr RH has, on many occasions, attempted to take it to the local dump but I’ve always thought it had potential.
And, on Friday, I eventually admitted to myself that I really don’t have time to take up basket making so I decided to cobble together a repair of sorts using whatever was at hand.
The rim, clearly, needed reinforcement and ‘whatever was at hand’ turned out to be the handle of an empty paint tub, a length of ribbon and a strip of old sheeting and that managed to make it fairly functional.
Do you have any projects current yarn or wool. If so, I’d love you to link up with WOOL ON SUNDAYS. The rules as usual are:
1). Posts must include some content – makes or musings or photos – related to knitting, crochet, felting, spinning or yarn.
2). Projects sewn from felt or wool fabric or stitchery using wool are also welcome but please don’t link posts that are exclusively about sewing, quilting and fabrics.
3). Posts don’t have to be from the past week but please put a link to WOOL ON SUNDAYS or grab the button from my sidebar and include it in or at the bottom of any posts you link up.
4). Visit anyone else who links.
Wishing you a happy week :)

Cute upcycle – pretty and functional!
Nice work!! I may have to borrow the idea of adding a scarf to a basket :)
nice job giving new life to your basket :) I've done some accidental felting a time or two myself
Great job with your basket. It looks lovely in that corner and the fixing that you did is so perfect that even looks like you bought it like that .
Your upcycle basket certainly adds a bit of pizzazz to your li'l corner. What a great idea!

Love that upcycling project, so neat!
Great idea. It would be a shame to waste an otherwise well-made basket.
