pinokeeo, I just showed my husband the pine needle basket and the ticket basket and he was in awe. That's a very high compliment from him. Wink And I've got both on display in our living room already!

(Blushing)  Embarrassed  Thank you all for the lovely comments.  The pine needle basket is only the third one I've ever made.  They do take awhile to make, but they are fun to build.

Asphalt Queen, I'm glad your hubby approves. Cheesy

The baby rattle and wooden buttons are great.  Woodworking seems like such a great hobby!

Oh my - I don't have kids, but I think *I* may want that rattle, what a great idea for one!  I love that pine needle basket, so unique!  Did you finish the buttons in anyway?  Maybe I can get DH to cut me some too, those would make great accents on some rustic style crafts.

The buttons don't have any finish at all on them.  I just sanded them.  You do have to peel bark, though.  Birch bark never wants to stay on the tree.

In the spring, when my cherry trees get trimmed, I'm going to try buttons from the cherry.  I always worry about it, because cherry splits almost immediately.

everything is looking so amazing!

pinokeeo, do you use long leaf pine needles? I remember my mom made a ton of pine needle baskets one Christmas, and that's what she used.

The pine needles come from my ponderosas, and since my trees are still babies the needles are only about ten inches long.  I suspect that in a few years I'll get longer needles, but not yet.

I've seen pictures of needles that were two feet long.  I'd love to get my hands on some of those.
