    When my grandmother died, I claimed her oval pine needle sewing basket with beads on top. It holds lovely memories for me. Inside the basket are her sterling silver thimble, buttonhole scissors, and her monogrammed sterling silver tatting shuttle.

    One day I'd like to tackle making a pine needle basket of my own.

    Your baskets are BEAUTIFUL! The horns are the perfect artistic, earthy touch. How can I sign up for your gift list?!

    I contacted my brother in fla, trying to convince him to send me a bunch of pine needles. It is a no go :(

    I did want to let you all know that he said they sell these needles by the bale for a few bucks each for landscaping . So if you are south you can start a new project LOL.

    Seriously??? You made these baskets??? I am VERY impreseed! They are so stunning! I especially like the stones you used as a base. I have never seen a "pudding stone" before - how beautiful! Nature is truly an artist, and so are you!

    Do the pine needles hurt your fingers when you work with them? I have never heard of this craft before...interested
