Sally retired from teaching in 2008 and is a firm believer that everything has an inherent value and should not be wasted. She has been experimenting with natural fibres, grasses, vines and recycled materials found in her local environment to turn what might have been wasted into something useful and pleasing to the eye. She brings her environmental beliefs to her love of basketry in creative and sometimes unusual ways.
