I have a friend who makes lovely pine needle baskets. I have a few zillion Ponderosa Pines on our property and can pretty well keep her in needles to weave. Sometimes I throw a few handfuls into the dye bath after the wool has soaked up all it can.
Her latest thing is making little 'trays' and she is having me
needle felt the 'balls' and she is making pin cushions of them.
They are kind of cute...
So, the woolly trail I seem to be on continues!
