Jo Hogan baskets . . .

 My mind does wander so . . .
recently musing over Autumn & collecting blackberries & chestnuts
I began to think about lovely baskets to collect them in!
This bought to mind the beautifully tactile & contempary baskets
made by Jo Hogan from Loch na Fooey, Ireland
Basket maker since 1978, 
i love the way he works items into the weave
This one called "from the bog"
