Raffia Sampler

 All it took was a snow day to find time to finish this decorated gourd which I began during the Basketweavers Guild of Bedford County fall workshop lead by Vicki Hartman.  Natural pine needles were coiled around a prepared gourd using raffia to join the coils to the gourd and each row. The pine needle rim features a variety of coiling stitches, including the closed coiling on the initial row.
