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,

Share a Basket and Making Our Home a Haven - Episode #8 Organizing Our Closets

Hi Friends,
Just letting you know that a new episode of Making Our Home a Haven is available to listen to.  In this episode I discuss how I organize my clothing and give you encouragement to tackle your closets as well as a few fun tips.  I was motivated this past week to organize my closet and I'm glad to report that I got rid of three kitchen size trash bags full of clothes, shoes and purses.  You can listen to Making Our Home a Haven right here as there is a player on my right sidebar, or you can listen to it on TalkShoe HERE.  You can also search for Making Our Home a Haven in iTunes podcasts and subscribe to it over there.  I hope you are all getting some good tips and enjoying the podcasts.  I would appreciate it so much if you would please let a friend know about them.

Now for the basket...This is a large basket woven on a "D" handle.  I use this basket in my pantry to hold snacks for the kids.  The wide strip in the middle is maple and is embellished with rub-ons.
Have a blessed Sunday everyone,

That's a beautiful basket. I have two friends who make baskets and they love it.

Those were some great tips. I try to go through my clothes fairly often too. I finally got to the point where I admitted I just wasn't ever going to wear this or that item again.

Thanks for linking up today!

That is a lovely basket. I have a market basket sitting on some shelves in my pantry room and keep extra kitchen hand-towels in it. I also have a smaller market basket in there that holds all of those smaller sized cookbooks (standing up) that you pick up at the check-out at the grocery store.

I have been purging my closets since I moved into my house a couple of years ago and I just donated five trash bags of clothes that I can't wear anymore. Feels good to get them out of the closet and let someone else get some use out of them.
