Exchange Basket Received: Marianne Barnes to Jessica Pitts
Here's another great basket in our Summertime Exchange, this one from Marianne Barnes to Jessica Pitts.

I shall add this lovely item to my exchange collection. Thank you Maryanne!!!!!" Way to go, Marianne! What a cute little gourd...and woodburning is particularly exquisite, it is easy to see that she is a very experienced gourd artist! A wonderful contribution.
I am a fiber artist, wife, and mother. My Catching the Moon series of weavings is largely about my life and the pursuit of dreams. See my Catching the Moon series on my website. 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!
