I made a pine needle basket!

Today I took a fun class - Pine Needle Basket Making. Living in our area of the country makes you appreciate woven basketry. It is great to have people around to teach it. Mine came out kinda lopsided, but I made it in one day, so I'm happy. I'm also showing a picture of the examples the teacher brought (mine is on the far right).




Unfortunately, this has also been a worrisome day for me as well. Pixie is very sick. I think she has a blockage like a hair ball. I came home during class to do what I could to help her. She's not out of the woods yet. But, if need be, I'll stay up tonight to keep her hydrated and hand feed her water and applesause. I hope I can help her pull out of it.

Love your basket. It looks tiny, is it? I've always wanted to try basket making, but now I think it would be hard on my poor old dry hands! I hope Pixie is OK.

Hi Liz. Yep, the basket is pretty tiny! I could put an acorn in it. Actually, the only thing that was hard on my hands was stabbing myself with the needle!
