A Yummy Basket

Today I spent a great deal of time updating the weblinks for my Cabinet of Curiosities course and Stumpwork course.  The web is a dynamic thing and often they go fallow.  Sometimes that is a good thing as a museum has finally gotten their collections online and I stumble onto a better set of pictures than ever existed on the web.  Today was one of those days!

Here is a beaded basket in the collection of the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge.  The basket formerly only had a picture that was close up on one corner, keeping us from seeing what the entire piece looked like.  And this one is such a lovely example!
