Baskets and Blankets, by Christine

This stamp commemorates a basket and a blanket. The basket has many different colors and designs. Their baskets were used for storing things like food and water. Their baskets were used for cooking too. The baskets were water tight so that nothing would leak out. My blanket has a variety of colors. Their blankets kept them warm in the winter time. The blankets were made of cotton and wool. They grew the cotton and raised sheep to get the wool.
