Life comes full circle at Belknap Hot Springs

IMG 4174Life comes full circle.
I have some of my pine needle creations on display at "Belknap Springs Resort" . 
 My basket weaving started when I lived across the river from the resort. It was a magical time of life to have your own private hot springs pool right out your front door. I would start the day  with a cup of coffee in hand, outside in hot water.
This was before my children were born and life was simple, plenty of time for my creative juices to flow.
Well life has had many changes since 1980. Although I still only live a few miles from Belknap Springs in a secluded place, I no longer have a private hot springs pool in my front yard.
I now again have plenty of time to weave. After working at "Holiday Farm Resort" for more that 10 years, it burnt to the ground this past April. I lost all of my weaving s in that fire, and a large part of my life . Well with loss comes gain.... I now have more time to make pine needle creations and to teach others how to as well!
If you get to Belknap Springs Resort to take a soak check out my work and walk across the bridge down stream to see where my basket roots began.

I remember that time well, and I have one of your first baskets with a lid which I am looking at as I write this note and next to it is one of your luminous creations which I love also. Keep up those creative juices your work is amazing and beautiful.
