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,

The Source of those Robins

Here it is 7:00 am this morning and I'm listening to the birds chirp and thinking to myself that spring is right around the corner.  I love to listen to the birds.  Honestly, they are really getting quite loud and so I go take a peek and there are all those robins that I mentioned yesterday.  Big ol' fat robins!  The pyracantha bush was LOADED and the picture doesn't do it justice with how many were in the yard.  They were on the fence, on the garden shed, in other trees.  I have two other pyracanthas in the yard and it looks like the berries on the other two have been picked clean.  Will probably only be a day or so and this one will be stripped too.  I always thought pyracanthas were poisonous but obviously the birds don't agree. 
Here are just a couple of pics from my indoor garden that is coming along.
You all can do the happy dance with me because spring is right around the corner.  I say this as it is 30degrees outside right now.  I'm soooo looking forward to warmer weather.
Enjoy your day!

Enjoy the robins! I'm sure we won't see them here for another couple of months and that's optimistic.
