Finished at last!!!
After more hours than I want to think about, my pine needle basket is finally done!
It doesn't look that big in the photos, but it is about 14" in diameter.
The two tones are made from long leaf pine needles and the
lighter color is sweet grass.
I used dark brown waxed thread on the pine needles and for the wrapped rows
and a natural color on the sweetgrass.
If you look closely you can see the stitch design.
Different stitches give different results. I wanted to create a pattern.
The agate center is very eye catching.
Now it's off to the judges at the State Fair.
Will keep you posted:-)
Until next time ~
