Crochet Edge Basket

Hope you all had a great weekend.  Mine was busy from start to finish with parties,
 kid's sporting events and homework projects for the kids too. 
 I did have time to sneak in a small decorating project in the midst of my weekend.  
I started off with a wire basket that I had that came from an assortment of nuts 
(walnuts, almonds etc) that we had at Christmas.
I thought it would be nice to add a crochet trim.  I picked up a great color yarn last week, which I was anxious to use on a project.  My favorite crochet projects are the quick ones.  
I simply crocheted all around the top and then added a scallop border.  Then I added a crochet rosette.  You can check out here how to make one of those.
Then I added burlap and two bunches of flowers I had to the wire basket.

Simple project that really dressed up a plain wire basket.  The clock is a Home Goods find from a few months ago.  I just had to have it.  I love the rustic look.

Can't wait to hear what you think!!
I always love and appreciate your comments.

That looks really pretty, Judy! I love the softness of the crochet edging with the roughness of the burlap.

Well you are so clever. I would never have thought to crochet around the top of a basket. It looks amazing and the burlap is such a great touch too. Fabulous flowers and I agree, the clock is wonderful. Thanks for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

Oh Judy that is adorable! I love to crochet although I haven't for quite sometime now. I still have an afghan in a basket that is unfinished. Thanks for sharing and the inspiration, Gail
