It was a grey, miserable, drizzly and cold day today, so I thought I could teach myself a new indoor skill. And a skill it is! According to John Seymour you just walk into a wood with a knife and you come out with a basket. Well may be a bit of practice will do the trick, this was my first attempt. We cut of the willow rods a couple of days ago and you must admit the end product looks vaguely basket-like. Although note the grim expression on my face while I’m wrestling with those sticks. We’ll make a few of them, filling them with Christmas biscuits and jars of our homemade jams or chutneys as presents for our lovely neighbours in Ponzano Superiore. Surely it beats wrapping paper and it doesn’t cost anything…
