Final Exchange Basket Received: Nancy Gildersleeve to Debra Steinman
The final basket in our exchange has been received! And for the reveal, we will hear from Debra Steinman:
I received my basket from Nancy Gildersleeve five days ago. It's using a darker colored pine needle, and waxed linen. The basket it self, is completely coiled with pine needles ... (no caps). The basket is coiled in such a way that the coiled layers are not all connecting which achieves a beautiful asymetrical affect.
Nancy thanks for the basket it's beautiful!
Wow, aren't they all great!???!! I am very pleased at how this exchange turned out.
We will vote on our favorite basket for this exchange, stay tuned! The favorite basket maker will receive a prize from my MakeaBasket.etsy.com shop!

I generally use basketry techniques, but love to mix media and techniques. I also use this blog to highlight my online guild, The Pine Needle Group (www.PineNeedleGroup.com )Thanks for reading my blog!
