Pin It

I love basket patterns and this one's for me, it's my "May Basket Stamp"  It's a bit early for May day, but if you want something together by then NOW is the time to start. 

May day is a fond memory I have of childhood, the making of  baskets, knocking on a friends door and trying to run away before they see you.   Here's my ALL grown-up basket.
