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,

Free Basket Weaving Pattern - Tea Cups

As the weather is starting to cool and the leaves starting to turn, doesn't a cup of hot tea sound delicious? My favorite flavor used to be Cherry Almond Tea, but it's not being made anymore. Anybody have a good recipe for it?

Well, if I can't have my favorite tea, then at least I can have a favorite teacup. Aren't these adorable. Julie, over at Deen Homestead Basketry has a free pattern on her website for them. You can link to it HERE.

Hope you'll give it a try and be sure to stay warm in your part of the world.

By the way...What is your favorite flavor of tea? I'd like to hear.

Happy Weaving,

Cherry Almond is my all-time favorite too...but hard to find!
If I can't have that, then I like Chai Spice!

I know it sounds wierd, but this recipe for cherry almond tea does work. It is good both hot or cold:

2 1/4 cups sweetened instant tea ( or unsweetened, if you prefer)
2 packages unsweetened cherry Kool-Aid
2 tsp almond extract

Place all ingredients in a food processor; process until well blended. Store in an airtight container. Yield about 1 - 1/2 cups tea mix.

To serve: Stir 2 teaspoons mix into 8ounces hot or cold water.

Julie: I just received your basket in the mail today, and I love it! Thank you so much!
