A Bench Basket

Every once in a while I have a good idea. Like this one. I wanted to hang a basket on the side of my bench to hold my weaving supplies but it had to be just the right size in order to attach it to the bench. So when I found this bicycle basket last fall I knew it was just right. Only I needed a way to secure it around the handle of the bench. I figured I'd just weave something on the tape loom only I never seemed to get around to it. Finally the other day I was fussing around while weaving, looking rather discombobulated, and wishing I had that basket attached. I announced, "If only it was attached all my problems would be solved." My hubby took one look at it walked into his workshop and came back with the cherry dowel you see here. "Oh, yeah that will work." He's a problem solver which makes him a keeper.  If I ever get this weaving project finished I'll throw some stain on that dowel and pretend like it was my idea all along.

"9-1-1 What is your emergency?"

"Yeah, I'd like to report a peeping Tom."
