This has taken me, so far, about 15 hours. That includes the border (which is post this picture, because I'm not very happy with it). It's a practice one for a basket I'm going to make next week. I thought I'd better make sure I can actually make one before making the poor woman buy it!
This structure is so strong I can turn it upside down and sit on it!
I've had such an amazing day outside making baskets. It's been just lovely. Well, until I realised the border was going to cause me pain. :)
