I find everyday presents inspirations for projects. Hope you enjoy my ideas.

Pine Needle Basket Take 2
Well...I have finished pine needle basket number 2. I have to say, they're really fun to make, sort of mindless work done while watching tv. Remember my first attempt? Pretty awful, I knew I could improve upon it. I thought the Hawaiian pine needles would work, but they turned out to be very brittle and broke easily. I had to wait until Chris came back from the mainland and could bring more needles from Ryan's house. I guess that is better anyway since I wanted this to be a housewarming present for his "newly remodeled" place and the basket would mean more made from his very own pine trees.
So...here is basket number 2. An improvement I think!
I may try some more when I get back to California next month...
married, 2 grown children (both married) 3 beautiful grandsons I paint (watercolors and oils) have been a printmaker since high school (forever) and since I sew I also enjoy dyeing and printing fabric. In short, I'll try any sort of project
