She has made one or two before!
Tom Wilson: No doubt of that, Ray!
Tough work - but she looks like an expert! I like the pattern on her skirt.
I've been to the Shenandoah Valley - Lovely place isn't it!
Tom Wilson: Yes, I liked the skirt, too - really lifts the picture smile Yes, Virgina as a whole is a pretty lovely state!
Magnifique portrait de cette dame en plein travail. Je te souhaite une très bonne année 2016.
Tom Wilson: Merci, Martine, et une très bonne année pour vous aussi!

I don't think she is making baskets any more. For one of many possible reasons.
All the best in 2016.
Tom Wilson: Time takes its toll, indeed, Louis - however, she's probably remembered by everyone who bought one of her baskets smile
The way it was...and now, the way it will be as we head into a new year, Tom. HAPPY HAPPY to us all.
Tom Wilson: Lets hope so, Ginnie. Have you read, by the way, Double barrel by Nicholas Freeling? I think you'd be amused by his take on Dutch life smile

Good pictures last, Tom
Tom Wilson: Especially when the scene is pretty timeless smile Thanks, Lisl.
I expect she could do this with her eyes closed Tom, well partly.
Tom Wilson: She's had a lot of practice!
And she is doing well Tom.
Happy New Year to you and yours!
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Richard - I ought to have bought one of her baskets smile
It is not an easy job but she has experience.
Tom Wilson: She certainly knew what she was about!
No doubt this lady is very talented at what she was doing.
Tom Wilson: I think we can be sure of that, Brian.
Thank you Tom and a happy new year to you too. I like her get up
Tom Wilson: Lovely skirt or apron or whatever, isn't it? She probably made that, too smile
I love these historical reenactments... Happy New Year, to you too!
Tom Wilson: The US is certainly big on them! Also went to a "colonial days" event in a village in Virginia and, as cars were banned for the day, and everyone was in colonial dress, it was like stepping into the past.
Excellent photo, best Wishes to You and Yours for 2016.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Roland - best wishes for happy photography in 2016!
Happy new year to you and yours Tom.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Frank - how's the weather shock affecting you on your return?
She is probably weaving on high now Tom

Happy new year to you too
Tom Wilson: I would imagine so, Bill - the only surprise is that I'm still around smile
A great photo to scan Tom...
All the best to you and yours in 2016!
....petersmile
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Peter.
