Project 11: Completed basket and Lessons LearnedMarch 19, 2011
I finished my basket! It’s a day later than I had hoped, but today is when I had the chunk of free time and the sunny patio to work on. At any rate, it’s done. I’m 75% happy with it. All I can see are the little details that I wish I’d done better, but even when it wasn’t completely finished it still held fruit so I think I’m calling it a success.
– It is probably impossible to make a perfect basket the first time.
– Some crafts are so new to me that I don’t even know what success or failure looks like, or even what questions to ask.
– I’m realizing that the premise of this blog may be a little silly. There is no way to get any kind of proficiency at a technique by only devoting one week to it. Then I remember that without this blog I wouldn’t have tried and I feel better.
– Procrastination is still an issue.
Next week it’s back to the couch with some small handwork in the hopes that I can get done on time. See you there!
