Japanese Leaf Scoop
When I first saw this I thought it was used to scoop fish out of the water. Of course, I didn’t think about them sliding back out through the hole!
Anyway, this is an implement, technically not a basket but beautiful just the same. It is actually used to hold and serve hors d’oeuvres and condiments. Quite ingenious. Anytime that reed is woven into itself the process becomes confusing for me. I did this from a pattern purchased from and designed by Flo Hoppe.
Looking at it, I thought it was quite large but it is only 1 foot long and seven inches at it’s widest point. The lashing is cane as is the top knot which holds all the reed together.
Where would I find the pattern? TIA
Do you have a pattern for this? I’d love to give it a try. I’m getting tired of just regular baskets.
I always spent my half an hour to read this blog’s articles or reviews
all the time along with a mug of coffee.
First of all I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.
I’ve had trouble clearing my mind in getting my thoughts
out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing but
it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to figure out
how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Kudos!
Thanks for your comment. I am a basket weaver, not a writer. Since I know my subject so well I don’t think about what I’m going to write. I just write about what I know. I write what I experienced and might be helpful to others. Don’t clear your mind. You won’t have anything to write about if you do! Hope this helps.

Hi there! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with Search Engine Optimization? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not
seeing very good results. If you know of any please share.
I’m sorry, but I don’t even know what a ‘plugin’ is.
Pretty! This was an extremely wonderful post. Thank you for

Hi and thanks for the nice comment to me as well. I wanted to email you about making egg baskets sit flat, rather email than try to explain on the reply form if that would be alright with you.. You can get my email from the General Information Page of my blog 1st paragraph.
Just wondering if you ever got my email that I sent? firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks Lynn
Your baskets are absolutely beautiful! Love this Japanese Leaf Scoop, and definately all the shaker Cat Head Baskets! Thank you for following my blog as well, it was a nice surprise this morning!
I found your baskets on Pinterest and went to your blog. Loved your baskets too. I really, really appreciate your comment. The only type of basket I haven’t made is a rib ; well I have made a 4″ egg basket twined with yarn and a basic 6″ egg basket (they won’t sit, just roll to the side). So I am still trying to learn. Thought I’d try a Melon Slice next so I don’t have to worry about it sitting! Ha!
