A start made on the 3 wicker defense works - look like they will take a long time to make.

You could be a basket case by the time they're done.

To make you all laugh ( I think some of us need a change of topic ) 
As I was doing the weaving used drops of superglue to hold the wire in place - had run out of thick glue so used thin - all OK.  Never thought that some of the glue would run down the inside of the wire and fasten it to the wood base, its now good and fast so will have to cut/drill/hack the wood from the wicker basket when finished.
REMINDER TO SELF MUST GET SOME THICK SUPERGLUE

Next problem "she who must be obeyed" thinks it look lovely the colours that it is. Have explained that at the battle of Maastricht in 1673 it would be all brown as it is made from tree branches.
She still likes the colours, so now I will have to make a different model with this type of wicker in, to stay on the good side - the things we do !!!!  Any ideas for this new model ??????
