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 and a Giveaway

Above is my laundry room catchall wall basket. You know, all the things you find in pockets such as money, cell phones, money, receipts, money. When I empty out pockets I put all the stash in this basket. Now honestly, I do get the money back to its rightful owner unless it just shows up loose in the washer or dryer. Then it becomes MY tip! You'd think my family would do a better job of emptying their pockets. Sigh....

Next, I want to let you know that Pamela Zimmerman is having a giveaway on her blog Catching the Moon. Paula makes these intricate coiled horeshair baskets. You heard me right, a basket made from horsehair! I can't imagine working on something so tiny. The finished basket fits on her fingertip. Paula even has an Etsy shop HERE where you can see more of her baskets and work in fiber arts. Be sure to visit her blog and sign up for the giveaway and take some time to see her work.
Have a blessed Sunday.
Love,
Nancy
