This basket was a gift for our very dear friend, Pier Luigi, who lives in Italy. Unfortunately I was unable to get a photograph of the completed basket before it was presented to him. I shall just have to go to Italy to take one!

completed at home at the end of April 2016.
In the course of its construction, this basket has been to:
