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,

Testing A Basket Pattern - Basketry

The mountains I see taken from the arial tram. The world's longest tramway here in Albuquerque.

Today has been quiet.
I live on the west side of the mountains where it is cloudy, but I can see that it is raining/snowing at the top of the mountains. It is only a matter of time before we get snow. We actually did have snow at the end of October. It came down as a blizzard lasting a whole 10 minutes and then it was gone!
I've been testing a basket pattern for a new pattern writer. No photos though. I don't show photos of the basket until the pattern goes up for sale. It is a nice pattern and I plan to use it in my kitchen. Am I just teasing you since I won't show you? I'll just zip my lip. I do want to say though that I won't be testing any more patterns until after the holidays. Our schedule is filling up fast and I have many things I want to do. Tonight I plan to sew an apron. With luck, I'll show you that tomorrow. I'm also wanting to get out my Christmas dishes and start with the preliminary decorating. I've also been spending time menu planning. Seems there is always so much to do around the holidays I have to start early.
What are you doing this weekend?

Hi Nancy, Your picture is beautiful. I live in the Knobbs of Kentucky, not mountains just knobbs. I have a poem on my post tomorrow Sunday that made me thing of you. I didn't write it, it was a gift from my daughter.
Blessings. I am making 16 handmade journals and paintings for Christmas gifts and I am doing double time. So much time for paint to dry and varnish and so on.

I'm working this weekend! But Friday morning I drove to Wellston and took a basket weaving lesson. What fun! I'll have photos and the story posted on Wednesday. Once I have supplies, I'll post more about you while I watch your videos! What fun!

Grab a cup of coffee and take time to enjoy some posts from the past
