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,

Happy Valentine's Day and some Heart Baskets

My Sweet Valentine Mike for over 20 years
Some fun heart shaped baskets for Valentine's day

I love braided rims on my heart baskets. It certainly isn't a requirement, but I guess I think they look delicate just like hearts.
Sweet Mike took me out to breakfast this morning to the Flying Star cafe. We took our laptops but couldn't get them working with their wireless internet this morning. (This was something new I was going to learn...How to use my computer at a location other than my home) I really wish I'd have taken a picture of us in the cafe. The two of us eating breakfast, at a restaurant, with our computers. This world of 'high tech' is crazy. I see teenagers in a group at a restaurant and all of them have their cell phones out and are texting someone rather than talking to who they are with. It is hilarious and yet sad at the same time. What is happening to the art of good ol' conversation. Mike and I were both going to work on our computers and had decided just to go out and have a nice breakfast at the same time rather than work at home. Anyway, the two of us had a very nice conversation and some good laughs while trying to diagnose why we couldn't connect to the internet which the problem was on the end of Flying Star.
Happy Valentine's day everyone. Be sure to show your special someone just how much the mean to you, and I love you all my blog friends.

Thank you for visiting my blog.
Your baskets are just beautiful!
And here's another coffee filter use for you, after you've made the coffee, rinse the filter, let it dry and it makes great background paper.

Grab a cup of coffee and take time to enjoy some posts from the past
