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

Beaded Doily Coaster

Hi Friends,
My in-laws were visiting this past weekend. My mother-in-law is an amazing beader. I've taught her how to weave some baskets throughout the years and this weekend she taught me to do the above beaded coaster. It is just the right size to sit my cup of coffee on in the mornings so you get an idea of its size. Took me about 4 hours to make.
Beading is one of those few crafts that I've not yet gotten involved in doing. I keep telling myself I CAN'T start another hobby!
Have a wonderful day!
Nancy

Very pretty! I can see this used as a doily with something pretty sitting upon it too!

Having had the pleasure to meet your MIL, and see a few samples of her work, I'd have to call her an exceptional and talented beading artist... and a fabulous and friendly woman!

Bee in bonnet ~ Beaded flying pig? (Hee hee... Just a thought!)

Hugs to you both~

Just beautiful! I understand about "just one more craft". I've got projects going in several rooms as it is.
Has your MIL made any of those stretchy beaded hair combs? I like those things. I'm not sure what they are called. lol

Oh wow - a whole doily from beads. I recently got into making beaded balls. Totally addictive - I just can't stop even though I have no real use for them. Have to browse your site now and see whether you have any easy, usable patterns. Check my bead ball objects here, if you are interested: http://craft-werk.blogspot.com/2010/02/lots-of-bead-ball-objects.html
