Finished Baskets - Part 2

So many people getting confused due to so many posts on the previous thread which can be found here:

So a New thread is here, please use this one. I will ask a moderator to maybe lock the other one or something but please use this one from now on.

Congratulations to all for all of the hard work you put in to your baskets! They look fab and lets keep up with the good work/fantastic ideas and friendly banter

Well done everyone

Salduck kindly started a Pictures only thread so all of the hampers are kept in one place. This thread can be found here:
