Det var det, der vækkede Uglemor. Men først skulle vi jo op, Ugleungerne skulle have morgenmad, have pakket deres madpakker, følges til bussen der naturligvis var forsinket i dag - Ugleungerne håbede på at den ikke kom. Så hjem igen og selv spise noget morgenmad. Og så skulle der altså tegnes og flettes.
Resultatet var - Ta-da: En metode til at flette en firkantet, eller en temmelig bred aflang bund til firkantflet i en endeløs bane. Altså skal der kun flettes to halve led på, et til start og et til slut, slet ingen "bandeled" i hele bunden. Fantastisk.

Wednesday morning MtotherOwl woke up early, before the alarm rang. Strange MotherOwl is an owl, she cannot find the bed at night and consequently has trouble getting up in the morning. But not this morning. MotherOwls head was bursting with candy wrapper ideas. I find joining the last links in each chains a difficult job, so I wanted to invent a bottom made from one spiralling chain. My first try had small holes in it to be filled with half links, not as difficult for my clumsy fingers as joining links into a chain, but it could be better. And that idea was what woke me up.
But first breakfast for the Owlets, lunch packets for the Owlets, off to the bus with the Owlets, of course the bus was late today. Home again and then some breakfast for MotherOwl as well. But as soon as the table was cleared I started weaving, and YES. I succeeded. A square or a fat rectangle for bottoms in basket, made from one long chain. This way I only need to weave in two half links instead of joining one link per chain or 3-5 pr. bottom.
