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.
