I enjoy dying the needles so I can make colorful baskets.
    I'm way up on the east coast, opposite from you, Nana, in CT. I hear our weather is similar. Yipes, lol I never thought of critters coming in with the needles, I would run!

    That is beautiful work. So lucky to have someone be able to teach you that. Never did basket weaving but do decorative painting on plaques, stones, figurines, slate or anything I can get my hands on.

    I'm always jealous of people who can paint. My daughter is an artist, and I always wonder where she got THAT gene! I've always wanted to be able to sing, too...BUT I didn't get that gene either!
