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

A Happy Mail Day

Look what came in the mail clear from Canada! It is a handcrafted lashing tool made from a spoon handle! Frances and her husband Ralph from Weaving Willow made it for me. I made a little tag for it that says where it came from and when I received it as I never want to forget, but I'm going to have to re-think my tag because I think it will get in the way of my lashing. I wove a basket with friends Anne, Faith and Darlene the other night but we talked and laughed so much I didn't finish the rim. I'm going to give my new tool some use and finish that rim this weekend. This is really clever. I can't wait to try it!
Frances, Thank you so much. I truly appreciate it.
Love,
Nancy

That is so wonderful to receive a gift in the mail like that. I will wait to see what you do with it. It is obviously a tool of your trade and I don't know what it is. Blessings

Hey, that is really clever! I've never used a lash buddy, but sometimes did wish I had one! That one is really special....do you have an engraving tool? Maybe you can etch something special onto it? Oh, and thanks so much for your suggestions for my lampshade experiment! Good ideas!
