Lol to everyone who has been commenting on all my posts I totally forgot i could just tag everyone in one post and that it would cause a bunch of notifications for everyone otherwise! Woops! I’m sorry!
Thanks! Yeah I’m like super baggy about it cuz I feel like a mountain person living off the land.
Thank you! Lol I don’t need to plant them cuz they’re already back!!! They are definitely weeds. I could probably make a quick wreath out of what grew back before winter. Hehehe
Thanks, Hon! Yeah I think they work better for it too. I like the rustic look to it. And it was easy!
I just didn’t think I’d get that big of a reaction from it. Not all my stuff has provoked such. My mom just really loves baskets I guess. I mean she has a lot. Lol. Thanks!
Yes you have to be careful! But poison ivy is pretty easy to identify. “Leaves of three let it be” and all that. The stuff is really too much here. Chokes out everything. So I don’t feel like I’m messing with stuff if I take it from the forest.
I’ve definitely been thinking of doing pine needle baskets! It seems way more tricky though. But I might have to try. Im always interested in adding more crafts to my arsenal. Heheh.
And yeah the cattails you must live in Florida or something? I’m jealous (I love reptiles or any animals really) but also I would probably get eaten by an alligator because I can’t leave things well enough alone. We have almost NOTHING dangerous in Minnesota. I guess that’s why I live here (fate?) cuz otherwise I’d be picking up poisonous snakes or spiders or I’d try to hang out with some gators… I did find out recently that the caterpillars with hairs on them can sting you. I’ve never been stung so I had no idea. I just pick them up by letting them crawl into my hand. Lol I’m also the kind of person who lets wasps and bees just come over and sit on me. People think I’m nuts. Pffft
@TheMistressT it’s good to be back! It’s actually pretty easy at least with the boat-like design and just using vines.
@Bunny1kenobi thanks! I feel extra accomplished because of how natural and anti-waste they are. Like a off-the-grid nature person. Bahaha. I didn’t know about the roots somehow! I will totally post the bread when I make it.
@Magpie I actually just sent for it! They do break a little sometimes but I just leave it as-is. I’m too lazy to dry and then soak I guess? I really want to try Willow weaving but I didn’t want to take them off the trees so maybe I can go grab some off the ground now?
I didn’t know you could use Nettles! I’m afraid of them! I got stung when I was harvesting the Virginia creeper at one point. Do not like!!!
@Stefanie thanks, Dear!
