Remember when *coiled baskets* were the rage a few years ago?
I have this one sitting on the counter~holding some miscellany stuff.
DD thought one for her would be nice and could I make it in purple?
I went into the closet, searched the blog and last week, before we left for Michigan, I finished this.
I also decided to make a flat one. I made it 8 inches across and tonight I will give it a test drive to *see* how it holds the heat.
I also have the beginnings of two more. Check out this purple butterfly batik I had stashed with this UFO! good thing it was hidden or I would have used it for my FAB pal, Cher and her birthday gift!

Mom update: Thanks for all the warm wishes. Mom is about as I expected. My sister left as she needed to return to her home and be *at her job* but plans to head back to Mom's in about a weeks time. In the interim, my oldest brother and his wife are staying with Mom. Brother#1 and SIL#1 are both between jobs and feel very blessed with this opportunity to look after Mom at this stage in her life.
