"Pleasing and Functional Pine Needle Baskets"

One of my sons gave me a book last Christmas about basketweaving, and it contained instructions for pine-needle weaving, which Id never seen before. I thought, Look on Novica, and there were Ms. Pereiras gorgeous baskets and coasters. Over the months Ive bought several for myself. The colors are vibrant and the weaving beautiful. I am giving sets to my children for birthdays. I love how the coasters are fragrant when you put a cup of hot tea on them. I used the baskets myself for many things, sewing, utensils, fruit. I also have the multicolored ones and those with the loops on top. All are wonderful!

"Love the color and shape!"

Although these baskets were smaller than I expected, I still like them and think they are beautiful! They do sit slightly wonky (not flat) but I still like them!
