Cross Hatch Bottom Basket

This is not necessarily a How-To post, as I forgot to take enough photos to really explain what I'm doing here along the way. But I thought you might enjoy seeing the process of how I weave a cross hatch bottom basket. If there is interest, I'm thinking of teaching a local class at our farm and maybe even a web class so those of you who live out-of-state can participate too.
The beginning of the cross-weave.
Using clothespins to help upset the sides.
The vertical weave and the color chain.
Pinning on the rim and the decorative seagrass edge ready to weave it all in place.
The finished basket ready for stain.
Let me know if you're interested and I'll get some dates together.
