This sweet little basket is made from raffia that I hand-dyed with last summer's plantain stems. It is finished with a border of woven honeysuckle vine, that was gathered from our land and hand-dyed with daffodils.

The perfect place to keep little treasures and trinkets, it captures a little bit of spring here in the Orkney Islands, when the return of longer daylight hours, brings with it a sea of sunshine yellow flowers. Daffodils, lesser celandine, marsh marigolds and dandelions are such a treat after winter and this season for me, will always be the season of yellow.
