Diane Knott's? Well mine did and I just HAD to have one. I contacted Diane to see if she remembered where she found that basket. And I got a lovely note back and she did know!
Dawn! So we have been chatting and calling ourselves "The Other Dawn"! (Dawn just isn't that common of a name)
And in the background is my new old Singer 401A. A friend at work mentioned he had this old sewing machine that his grandmother used when he was growing up and it has been collecting dust in their house. He was throwing it out but knew I quilted, so asked if I wanted it! Did I! Yes I did! So I told him I would be more than happy to take it off his hands. I offered to pay for it and he kept declining! What a find. So the day I picked it up from him at work I had gotten a gift certificate for his family to go out to dinner at a nearby restaurant. No way was I not thanking him for this baby! She needs a bit of oiling and cleaning, but otherwise is in excellent shape!
So - if you want a basket like this - go visit Baskets by Dawn! You can tell her "The Other Dawn" sent you!
