Making an item that is useful, not too frivolous, but that is also beautiful, wonderful to touch and fabulous to use, gives me great satisfaction. My baskets are traditional in style, I make them a little different by adding a piece of driftwood for a handle, use a pattern from my loom weaving and of course, lots of colour. I enjoy the process of planning the project, gathering the materials together and mostly the weaving, the methodical over and under while watching the piece grow.
