New Baskets by RUTH ANNE DANGER!

Here are some great new baskets by Ruth Anne Danger. I love it when you all share your baskets with me. Please remember if you have a basket that you have coiled using a pottery base from my MakeABasket.etsy.com shop, i will publish it in this blog, you don't have to be an Award-winning coiler and teacher, like Ruth Anne is!

Here's what Ruth Anne said about her fabulous creations: (remember, you can click on any of these images to get a closer peek!)

"I love using your basses because what I put in the bottom of the basket often is the inspiration for the basket itself. I set on my couch every morning and have my oatmeal then pick up my basket to coil. I then go thru my supplies for inspiration by sorting thru my stash of your basses.

When one picks me I then back it with contact cork both to protect the pottery and what it is placed on. I then sew thru both the cork and the pottery. I have found the customer really like this.


I just love the flowers with the dyed purple pine needles and the sweet grass really sets it off. This is a Easter basket that can be used all year long. The other basket is all pine needles and sliced walnuts.
The stitch in the bottom of the flower basket was done to reinforce the bottom. 2 stenches on the inside and 2 on the bottom around. With the single stitch it needed reinforcement.

Thanks for making the basses available to us.

Hi Ruth...I was sent here by Pam Caskey to look at the jewelry she said you made but don't see any..very nice baskets though. I have been making the pine needle baskets for about 6 months and just wanted to check out if jewelry would fit into the pine needle weaving...if you have your jewelry in another place maybe you could let me know about where to view it. Thanks Jerome Waldron

Ruth, I will be living in Zephyrhills, FL this winter and am interested in taking a Pine Needle weaving class. Are you offering any? If not could you recommend a place?
