rope therapy

Some of the baskets are meant for gifts. Others will be used by us – and there are SO many uses!  And I still have so many ideas floating around in my head, inspired by those who started me on this rope making path. There’s this amazing lady, and this one and she’s playing with making rope cuffs – so fun!  Then there’s this one who makes clothesline into works of art – check out her video. And finally, there’s this man, who has sculptural creations as well as baskets and bags of every kind. So much inspiration!
