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,

Party Favor Basket Pattern, FaveCrafts Feature, and getting ready for Christmas

Dear Friends,
I've been blogging over at FaveCrafts and you can read about it HERE.
With all the great colors of reed I created from using the tie-dye kit, I made some sweet little party favor baskets. I have the pattern to one of them available for you to copy over at FaveCrafts. You can link to it HERE.

Did you know, it is only 52 days until Christmas. Time is ticking away. Have you been making your list and checking it twice? Have you been thinking about what you will be making in the way of crafts? What will you be cooking? Kind of makes your head spin doesn't it? Coming up over the next two months, my blog will have some inspiring and creative baskets and crafts that you can do before Christmas. Just looking at the photo above makes me inspired to get out my recipe books and start planning. If you don't care to cook and are looking for some unique gifts, pop over to Figi's Gifts in Good Taste and you will find your holiday cooking just got a whole lot easier. They have some wonderful food.
Start planning now what baskets you will be weaving for those on your list and what you will be putting in those baskets. Keep your eyes open for things you will be needing that are on sale now. Do you need more reed or handles. Again, think about that now before your supply runs out. What are you doing now to get ready for the holidays? I'm starting my notebook with my lists!
Have a wonderful day.

I have done my shopping at Michael's since all my gifts will be homemade. I needed acrylic paint, aging varnish, trim for my GD journals. Now today I will make a list staring with the painted items that take longer to dry and need layers of paint. I should have started long ago, but. Can't make the basket, but I love the idea in your picture. Gives me another idea that I needed.
