May Your Life Be Like A Basket...Useful...Bountiful...Beautiful...

Basketmaster's Weavings is about my passions, much of which revolves around basket weaving. I weave with reed and I love teaching others to weave. Many of the patterns and styles that I show in the blog are geared to the beginning weaver, or even the brand new weaver. If you have been thinking about wanting to learn to weave, then this blog is for you. Throughout the blog and videos I take you step by step through each and every process of weaving. I want you to be successful in weaving the very first time you try. For the intermediate and advanced weaver, my wish is that you take ideas that I show, mix them up a bit, and incorporate them into your own beautiful creations.

Happy Weaving and Baskets of Blessings to all my visitors,

Nancy

Woven Napkin Basket and I got a Cricut


I made a square basket today. This was made using 1/2" flat reed for the stakes and 3/8" flat and 11/64" flat/oval for the weavers. I really liked using this pretty brown. The state fair is coming up. I can enter some of my baskets on Thursday. I've never entered anything into the fair so this is a first for me. Oh, one more thing, today is my birthday. I got a Cricut for myself a couple of months ago off e-bay for my birthday present. Mike brought me roses when he came home from work. Katie had an open house at the high school and then we all went to dinner at Red Lobster. It was a wonderful birthday. (I'm 44)
Love,
Nancy
