Exchange Basket Receive: Ruth Anne Danger to Sue Cowell

This lovely basket was sent to Sue Cowell from Ruth Anne Danger

Sue says:
I guess I'm the first to get my exchange basket, and boy, has the bar been set high. My basket was made by Ruth Anne Danger. It's an earthy delight of pine needles, sweet grass, beads, and a ceramic start made by our fearless leader, Pamela. The coils are natural light green and dyed soft brown, with intermittent large, dull orange, beads, coiled around a start that says "The Pine Needle Group". While the upper part of the basket is free-form coiling, it is still incredibly solid, even without any help from sprays or wax. The basket is sewn with dark brown sinew, which empathsizes Ruth Anne's beautiful stitching. Thank you so much, Ruth Anne.

Lovely basket, Ruth Anne! So glad you are happy, Sue! What a great way to kick off our exchange!

This is so lovely! Beautiful coiling and I love that base!
I snapped one of the PNG bases up to make a basket for myself. This group has meant a lot to me over the years.
