Let me know what you think. I hope some pine needle basket makers who have never tried this will find this video helpful.
I now have Txweaver channel on YouTube with two videos. The first one is how to make cordage out of dried day lily leaves. Today was full of learning new things about making and managing YouTube videos.

So I joined the local Gem and Mineral Club to take their classes and use their great power tools. This morning the club had a little swap meet in their parking lot and I found these great future pine needle basket centers. I also met a club member who has a barrel full of what he considers junk agate slices that I can go through. It was a productive morning!

As I was making this little round purple pine needle basket bowl, it wanted to become a heart! Now it's called Purple Valentine. I'm even OK with the fact that there is a different number of twists on each side. Back in my "weaving using a protractor" days, I would never have let that happen. :)
