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,

A Correction on My Post

Good gravy friends did I make a mistake! This sweet basket from W.H. Baskets that I posted about HERE is not a Bug Catcher Basket, it is a BAG CATCHER BASKET!!! It is funny how our eyes and our minds play tricks on us. Timothy had been talking about parts of insects in his science class. It got me to thinking about how when the children were younger we would catch insects in a bug catcher. Then when I saw the wooden base with the hole in it I guess my mind just wandered. I had bugs on the brain. But let me tell you, it is a BAG basket for all those grocery sacks that you accumulate. I am so laughing at myself and hope you are laughing at with me on this. Please go back to W.H. Baskets and take another look at this sweet basket and download your free pattern. A bag catcher basket is very handy indeed. (although a bug catcher can be just as handy at times) I have a bag catcher basket hanging in my pantry that I wove years ago and it gets used daily. (I have a bug catcher too but not a bug catcher basket) Ok, just shut up Nancy. Know when to quit.

Forgive me W.H. Baskets for my slip.

One more thing as an FYI. There had been some question as to the cost of shipping as W.H. Baskets is located in Canada. They have informed me that they shipped two large bases to North Carolina for $7 so that can give you an idea of how much shipping might cost.

Baskets of Blessings everyone,

Bwahahaha! I wondered, but thought that it was like a flycatcher, like a mockingbird or jay bird. :) Hence the whiskers, to feel the bugs fly past.

I'm totally laughing, because I printed the pattern before you posted (I have been wanting to make a "bag catcher" for a while, but thought I'd have to sew one). After your original post, I decided I had definately misread something on the pattern, and put in the "maybe later" binder. A BUG CATCHER basket, while interesting and original, kind of gave me the willies!

The BAG CATCHER pattern is, once again, in my "weave it soon" binder :-) Thanks for the clarification.

LOL! You are too funny...I noticed that, but knew what you meant! Who among us can say we haven't done the very same thing before? LOL...I like the idea of a bug catcher basket anyway! ;)

:=) You're so cute!! Thanks for the giggle!!

Wow! Only $7 for shipping?!! That's cheaper than Gratiot Lake. I'm definitely going to take advantage of this!
