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 - Candle Basket

This sweet little basket is made on a wooden base in which #3 round reed is inserted from the bottom up. It is just the right size to hold a Yankee candle. The four ball feet are glued onto the bottom of the base. I had bought the base and ball feet many years ago from The Farmer's Wives. They included this candle patten in with the wooden pieces. The Farmer's Wives used to put out a catalog with their patterns, kits and and some of their specialty pieces for baskets. I have found through the internet that they are still weaving, but I don't know if they sell supplies any longer. Does anyone here know or have a link to them?
Have a blessed Sunday,
Nancy
