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,

Have you heard??? Contest Time and another free pattern

Have you heard that over at Baskets of Joy they are having a "My Favorite Basket Ever" contest? You can e-mail Anna over there and enter a picture the most favorite basket you've ever woven. While you are there, be sure to pick up the free pattern of the month that they have. It is a really cute tote made with shaker tape handles and is called an "Errand Basket".

I think I have some shaker tape in my stash that I think will be just perfect for this basket. I'll have to dig out the shaker tape and I'll post a picture when I get it woven. Also, if you don't have all the supplies, you can get them at Baskets of Joy or they sell this kit for just $28. Super cute!

Now, how can I ever decide which is my favorite basket to enter? Don't I always tell you that all my baskets are my favorite? I'm guess I'm going to enter my lamp basket. Not only did I weave this, it is my own design. (FYI, yours doesn't need to be your own design though, just your favorite basket that you wove.) If you decide not to enter, would you be so kind to look over the baskets and if you think mine is the best, vote for me please? If you do enter, let me know because I want to see your basket! You have until July 1st to enter and the winner gets a $50 gift certificate to her store! That alone should motivate many of you to enter. I must say, there are already some really nice entries, but hey, somebody has got to win! Right? Also, wouldn't it be so cool if it were someone who reads my blog? If it's not me, I want it to be one of my blog friends here winning it because I've seen what amazing work some of you do!
Have a really great day today and spend some time outdoors weaving.
Enjoy the birds, enjoy the breeze and enjoy the moment.
Love and Blessings,
