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

Feature a Friend Friday--Julie from Deen Homestead Basketry





Dear Friends,

I have someone special I'd like you to meet today. Her name is Julie and she blogs over at A Hand-Woven Life.

Julie has been weaving for 18 years and has been selling her baskets the past five or six years at an antique shop. Julie says that when she is not basket-weaving she enjoys crocheting, book-making, reading, writing, and playing piano. She and her husband have a zoo on their farm. Ok, only kidding here, but she and her husband manage a farm that includes 20 head of cattle and about 30 sheep as well as two dogs and a ferret and I cannot forget to mention her three children. Julie you are one busy lady! Actually, we have quite a bit in common with our interests. I just don't live on a farm.
I really find Julie's baskets to be beautiful and some are quite unique. Just look at the spoon basket above. I think that is just such a clever way to weave a basket.
Julie has a website, Deen Homestead Basketry where you can see many of her baskets. While you are there, be sure to look at her Woven Country Angels. We are talking some serious cuteness here.
Take a moment to stop by her blog as well as her website and say, "Hello!" Julie is a kind and generous person and is someone who you would want to sit down and weave with and share a pot of coffee.
Baskets of Blessings,
Nancy
