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

My Favorite Week of the Year Starts Today!





The Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta started this morning with balloons launching off from every elementary school in the area. When balloons go over your head like this one coming over my house, it just takes my breath away. We have so much beauty from God to appreciate, but this is one of my favorite man made beauties on earth. We are fortunate to see a few hot air balloons almost every day of the year, but to see them in such quantity it is incredible bling in the sky.
The first Friday morning of the fiesta is a great start to the week. The elementary school, a couple blocks away from us, sells hot chocolate and breakfast burritos so it is a terrific fundraiser. The children are so excited to see the balloons being inflated and take off from their playgrounds. It is a sight!

I took this photo of the woven hot air balloon basket years ago at either a St. Louis Basket convention or Kansas City Basket convention. I didn't weave it and I'm sorry I don't know who its creator was, but what a perfect basket to show you a picture of today!
Baskets of Blessings,

Nancy
