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,

Yesterday's Harvest and my Harvest Baskets

Don't you love the colors? Maybe you think I'm silly here as I love flowers, but I think a basket of fresh veges is as pretty as a bouquet of flowers and I love them sitting on my counter for the day until I put them in the refrigerator or we eat them for supper.
This is actually a pie basket, but it is sturdy for harvesting all my vegetables. I wanted to show the base of it. the woven "X" ads a bit more strength, but it also rounds the corners on this square basket.
We're getting plenty of tomatoes now, but with the heat, the tops are splitting. My pumpkin vines have died so the pumpkins were starting to get soft. I don't know that I'll do anything with the pumpkins in the way of cooking, but I will set them out to look pretty for a while.
Baskets of blessings to all of you,

What a beautiful harvest! We grew many of the same crops, but our cucumbers didn't fare so well this year.

I agree that a basket full of colorful fruits and veggies are definately as pretty as a bouquet of flowers.

By the way... Those pumpkins are begging to be made into a pie!

Hugs and blessings~
