The pine basket workshop was a fine success! Everyone very engaged and having a good time. Weather perfect (a bit overcast), cool and comfortable. The group, sitting around the table reminded me of a congenial sewing circle of old. And Elijah, the 8 year old boy who lives in the nearby apartment came and became part of the circle.
One of the participants said working on the basket was like meditation.
A member of the class, Cathy, volunteered to stick around and help me weed the garden. Turns out she's very interested in gardening and food preparation.
