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,

Happy Halloween - A Witch Basket - and Instant Messaging

I made this witch basket years ago at a basket guild meeting. I wish I had a better photo of it but I have given this basket away. The rim is interesting as it is a "rolled border". I sewed the arms and the hat came from the doll department at a craft store.  It is not my design.  This pattern is titled "Hagetha" and the author is Wanda Grahm.

I also wanted to say, last night on my computer, a small window popped up with the first name of someone asking if they wanted to be my friend for IM'ing.  I'm not into instant messaging so I declined, but then the computer said it would block all messages from this person.  I didn't want to block e-mails from this person, I just didn't want to become involved with IM.  I didn't recognize this person immediately.  Then thought it might be a blog reader.  I don't want to offend anyone here and I'm sorry if it was one of you I blocked.  Blocking was not my intent.  It just seemed to happen when I declined receiving that person's IM's.
Hope you all understand.
Happy Halloween,
