Tiny Basket

This basket is so tiny, I just had to photograph it with my small Fiskars embroidery scissors.  The kit is one of Sharon Klusmann's featured basket kits right now, and is called the Mahogany Cross Stitch in Black Ash.  While you might think making a tiny basket would be quicker than a large basket, this one took me all day, as I had to figure out the easiest way for me to complete the cross stitch rows.  This is the first time I've made a round basket, so there was a lot of new techniques, and of course, I had a few issues with following directions Yes, I read the instructions, but didn't completely follow them, and realized the difference at a point that I refused to rip back, so the bottom is a bit different than hers, but it works!
