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

Share a Basket Sunday

I know I posted this Sunday, but "As for Me and My House" is hosting a Happy Home Monday and my baskets and sharing cake decorating with Emily is definately making our home happy.
Pop over to their and check them out!
This is a small sweet basket that is holding cinnamon sticks. I had made this for my mother. The stakes are 3/8" flat. The handle is 3/8" flat oval that is just inserted into the weaving, so it could pull out. This is a basket just for decoration. I really like the shape of this basket as I let the body of it flare out a tad. I pulled in on the top of this basket on purpose and then let it again flare out at the rim just a bit. Notice the little basket feet on the bottom. The Minwax stain on this basket is Golden Pecan.


On to other things. My daughter Emily and I have been taking cake decorating classes at Michaels. I must admit, with homeschooling her, it is nice to be able to say, lets take a Friday morning class and I'm not having to take her out of school because she can do her school anytime. She has enjoyed being homeschooled this semester and I plan to homeschool our youngest, Tim starting in the fall. I thought Emily's Tinkerbell cake turned out so sweet just like her decorator. And it was delicious.
I did the hot air balloon cake. Yes, we've been eating a lot of cake lately!

Have a beautiful and blessed Sunday. We are now off to church.

Love,

Nancy
