This is so cute, and it doesn't have to be just for the holidays. Why not leave it out on a table all winter, put fresh boughs in. Or small wrapped presents, pine cones, fruit, there are so many ways to use this. You could line it with a tea towel and serve breads in it.
The beautifully crafted runners are 13 inches in length. Dave (Lupine Lady Pat's husband) makes the runners and sleigh bottom in his workshop. The overall height of the sleigh is 8 inches. The basket is 10 by 7, and 3 1/2 inches tall in the front, 5 1/2 inches tall in the back.
Pat Huckins is based in Greenville, on Prong Pond, and has been weaving baskets for many years. She learned to weave at a class in Hallowell and has enjoyed it ever since. She has taught many classes in the past and her favorite student and fellow weaver is her nephew Levi. Levi is a bright young man with Autism, though he does not let Autism define him. He loves to travel, surf, down hill ski, swim, and compete in Special Olympics. Levi and his Aunt Pat have started a new venture selling their baskets on Moosehead Marketplace. They hope you enjoy the baskets as much as they enjoy making them.
