The newest project on my plate is to make soap dishes from pine needles around a cane base. The pattern comes form pine needle guru Jeanie McFarland in Alsaska. First, two rows of pine needles are coiled around the back of the cane to form a base. Then eight rows of pine needles form the dish. All the coils are hand sewn with natural raffia. You can see it from the top and the bottom, as well as holding some of my scrubbies. Hope they'll be in my shop soon and they'll definitely be part of my gift giving this Christmas!
