Melissa Smith Abbott's journey with Pine Needle Baskets, Pine Trees, Pine Needles, Pine Pitch, and Pine Oil. It's all about Pine but mostly about Pine Needle Baskets with a few Nantucket Baskets too! Techniques, Sourcing, Stitching, Dreaming About, Gemstones, Beads, Tennerife, Preserving, and Organizing Baskets. I love Pine Needle Baskets and I hope you do too!
