Jill, the baskets are 6-1/2" unfinished. Set on point they are 9" unfinished.

I did the pine needles and branches with just thread. I put the swagged branch on with a stretch stitch on my machine using two different threads going thru the needle at once. Then I did the stems off the branches with the same two threads and a regular straight stitch on the machine. The needles were done free hand on the machine with a green varigated thread.

Absolutely fabulous! All that free hand work makes it ever so special!!

Ritzy, how did you do the pine needles? Are they hand appliqued/embroidered. I can't get a good enough close up to tell. They are just so soft looking.
