Thanks for the ideas!

So here's the finished piece all ready to list in my shop. I added the cutting board with cheese, grapes and a knife; the small blue water jug; and the fern planted in a basket. The cheese and jug were made from polymer clay. The grapes came from a fake plant. The basket was made with a circle of wood for the base, aida cloth for the woven part, and cording for the handle and trim. I stained the finished basket with oak stain and planted some plastic fern leaves in it. I could add more but I will leave it as is for the customer to embellish if he/she wishes.

Parfait! ;) That turned out great, good job! I really love the basket you made for the plant, it looks so real, who would guess that it's Aida cloth?

Thanks, Grace! It was really easy, too. That's my favorite kind of project. :-)
