Coiling With Friends

Every year around Valentine's Day
we head south to Zephyrhills
to visit our friends and make a trek to
the Webster flea market.
This phenomenal flea market covers what seems like
hundreds of acres with tons of vendors
selling all sorts of treasures.
I am always on the lookout for knitting and crafting stuff. 
Last year I came across someone selling agate slices.  I purchased a few
and sent them off to be encased in acrylic so they could be used
as a base for a pine needle basket.
It just so happens that the friends we visit
(well, the wife at least)
is who taught me the craft of
making a pine needle basket.
So when we get together, we coil...
sharing ideas
and new methods
to use in basket making.

She is very talented and encourages me
to look beyond what is
usually done.
The agate in acrylic was just such an adventure.
I love how the clear acrylic allows
whatever color come through.

My latest creation, now in my Etsy Shop

Thanks for stopping by!
Until next time...


  1. I always love your baskets! And your pendants, too. :)

  2. Hi Terri! So good to 'see' you today!
    I really like your basket work. And the agate certainly adds another dimension to the work.

  3. It is stunning my friend.

  4. Your basket is beautiful done! Looks like fun!

  5. Hi, Terri -- thanks for stopping by my blog :) Your baskets are so beautiful -- I've only seen pine needle baskets like that one other place. They are so unusual. A lady in Oriental makes them - she sometimes puts a cross-section of seashell in the center of her baskets. Very unusual. Your agate is just gorgeous!

  6. Beautiful basket. It's always wonderful to have friends who share the same passion, work together and share ideas.


I would love to hear from you!
