What materials did you use? The baskets are made with long leaf pine needles inside the coils. The stitching and open work is done with raffia.

What are you most proud of? The time it takes to make a really big pine needle basket is a little daunting. I guess I'm proud that I stuck with it long enough to make some nice big ones.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Start with really good books and start small. Give yourself time for the hand/mind coordination to kick in. It may take a few baskets but once that happens, you'll feel a real sense of accomplishment.

The baskets are quite a work of art!

I have made several baskets from FL long leaf pine needles. Yours are superb. Mine have been on a smaller size, but you have inspired me to make a larger one.

Hi! Your baskets are beautiful! I love your designs. I have wanted to learn to make them, but need advice on books. I would love to eventually make the larger baskets. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks, Joan
