Exchange Basket from Debra Steinman to Diane Heister

They are flying in regularly now! This one was made by Debra Steinman and received by Diane Heister. Diane writes:

I received a wonderful basket from Debra Steinman. She has left the caps on the bundles to create a very interesting design.It was stitched with rafia also. It reminds me of a cactus!This is a very unique piece that has inspired me to try more daring designs.Thank you Debra!

Debra's basket is very asymmetrical and has lots of texture. I am betting these are not longleaf pine needles, either! Care to tell us what they are, Debra? Diane lives in longleaf pine country, and i would wager this is her the first non longleaf pine needle basket she has seen in person!

Interesting shape! I like the cactus comparison. The raffia makes it look very light colored, and the contract with the dark needles is lovely.
