I used to make a lot of Pine Needle Baskets until I, all of a sudden, developed an allergy to the pine needles.
I was very very disappointed as I loved making the baskets but at least I can say I did it and I sold and bartered with many of them.
Here are a few of my favorites. This was my very first basket. I think that my dear sweet MIL put claims on that right off. hehe
This one I made for my dear sweet daughter, Summer Rose
And so this is just another part of my self put into my work. I really enjoyed the feel and the smell of the pine needle baskets. I suppose I could switch and use a different material but I haven't as of yet. It has sort of taken a back burner much like my gourd beading has. This was a little cracker basket that I made for a friend.
I am much more into the fabric and stitching right now in my life but who knows what I will be doing tomorrow. Tomorrow is another day in my life.
