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

What We're Weaving and Mr. Linky

Happy Mother's Day to all you wonderful mothers out there. God Bless all of you!
This is a basket I made for my mother. I hot glued a doily to it as well as hot glued the little pansy cerammic piece to the doily. The size of this is perfect for putting packets of seed in it so that is just what I did! It uses a 4" x 6" 'D' handle. Did you make a basket for your mother? Have you made a basket for your mother in the past? If so, I'd love to see them. Link up with Mr. Linky below in What We're Weaving so we can all enjoy the beautiful baskets we've made for our mothers. You can link to your past posts.



What We're Weaving--Mother's Day

Several times a year I'm going to post What We're Weaving. This will give all of us an opportunity to share with one another what we are weaving and working on. It is intended to spark ideas with one another and to help us get to know other weavers all around the world. Hey, I and others want to know you are out there and to say hello to you! So please don't be shy and jump right on in.
Here's how:

1. Go to the specific blog post of your basket on your blog and click on the title of just that post. Then at the top of the page where it has the e-mail address that starts http://www/......... Just copy and paste that into Mr. Linky. This will take us directly to your blog post (not your blog home page) and we won't have to search through your blog to find the basket you want to show us. It is also going to ask for your name. You may use your first and last names or just your first if you want.

2. Please mention and link to my blog on your blog. Then we all get to see beautiful baskets and get to know more and more basket weavers. Let others know to post links to their beautiful baskets here as well.


Again, Happy Mother's Day. How are you going to celebrate? What did your children do for you? What did you do for your mother? We are going to church this morning and I'll call my mother and mother-in-law. As for what else happens, I'll have to let you know tomorrow.

Baaskets of Blessings,

Love,

Nancy

Whoops! Great idea Nancy about Mr. Linkey and the basket posts, but it didn't work correctly with mine. On almost all my blog titles of the posts, I code them to take people directly to the website that I am blogging about. So, I will need to make a blog just about the new baskets I'm working on to get Mr. Linkey to work correctly, I think. Sorry, didn't follow directions very well, I guess. Will try again.
