  1. Yay! Pictures! looks GREAT!

  2. Hello Forager,

    How is the glycerine experiment coming along? It's early days but I'm really interested. Weaving a willow basket this evening from odds and ends of wild willow from my stash. It's going to look pretty rustic.

    Hope to see another post on this. Best wishes.
