The Third Lid
I have finally finished the lid for this basket! It was touch and go there for a while. After throwing out the 1st lid, and giving up on the 2nd lid I was determined to make a lid and make it right. Since I was making it without a pattern or anything else to study I found it to be ‘extreeemly’ difficult.
What I ended up with is an enclosed pyramid. With a flat top. Or an upside down top! Ha! And, hey, I really like it. But I won’t be doing another one anytime soon!
Just trying to explain this thing is difficult. Like, does saying I put a base on the bottom and ended with a base on the top make any sense? Let me know because that’s what I did. After I found the finial for the top online, Ha!, I knew what I wanted the finished product to look like. And so, this lid will forever be called “The Third Lid”. At least in my mind’s eye!
Let me know what you think.
WOW!! Gorgeous!! I’m just staring now. You are inspiring me to create. Thank you for sharing your wonderful work.
I absolutely love this basket,I would love to try making one, have done several Cat Head baskets over the years. none as grand as this one though!
Nice shape of the basic cathead basket. The lid is lovely and finial makes the basket.
Keep up the lovely work
