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

New Mexico State Fair Baskets and Ribbons

We went to the state fair yesterday and were so excited. I had entered a basket and Emily and I both entered some scrapbooking pages. All our entries won ribbons!
My lamp basket won a third place ribbon.
My scrapbook page of my baby Katie who is now 16 years old won a third place ribbon. (I so badly wish I could turn back time as I miss having sweet babies in the house.)
My scrapbook page of Timothy won 1st place!
Emily took a third place ribbon for her scrapbooking page. This was the first time she had entered anything into the fair. She was a happy girl.
Below are photos of other basket entries in the fair (not mine). I just wanted to include them because honestly, isn't it just fun to look at baskets and get inspiration!
Have a wonderful day,
Nancy

Oh Nancy I think you should have a blue ribbon on your basket. But congratulations to all of you. I love the idea of getting the kiddos into the fair activities. We did that when I was in Girl Scouts and 4-H but sad to say, didn't continue with my own children. Some neat baskets for sure. Love your Post.

Glad to see people entering their work into fairs. I always enjoyed doing this when we lived closer to fairgrounds. Congrats on the ribbons and tell your daughter to keep it up!
