Fruit filled baskets!

I still haven't recovered from the basket making addiction...whenever I have a spare minute, which isn't often now as 2 weeks today & "the wedding" will be in full swing, there I am picking up my wires & threads & weaving away! Seriously addictive!!
These two I've actually managed to find the time to fill & there are another 3 waiting patiently on my workbench for me to get around to filling them!

Freshly picked rhubarb...I still have loads of it in my garden  & there's nothing quite like eating a fresh stalk dipped in sugar...I'm still a kid at heart!!

The pears weighing down my pear tree inspired the filling for this basket.  I have no idea what variety they are, but I do know that they are delicious eaten straight off the tree!

Linda, Your fruit is delicious looking as usual and so realistic! I LOVE the baskets that you have been making! They look great! It would be wonderful to see a group of them empty so we can see all of the details of them!!

These pears are wonderful and so real looking! You can even feel the juicy fruit fresh under the skin. Perfect work!

Love all your baskets, they're very neatly made, just like all your other work!
Hope the garden is still looking good for the wedding.
