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

Share a Basket Sunday

Good Morning Friends,
This sweet little basket that I wove some time ago sits in a shelf in our bedroom. It is only about 6 inches in diameter. The base spokes are made out of #0 round reed. For each spoke there are 5 pieces of the #0 round reed lying side by side and then they split off to make more spokes as the basket is woven. Around the bottom, what looks like flat reed is really more #0 reed that is woven in a chase weave.
I hope all of you have been having a good week. Yesterday was National Scrapbooking Day. I tried to do a little paper crafting and did make a Thank You card, but when I'm home with the family it seems like something is always coming up to keep me busy (like feeding them) so my crafting was cut short. Do children and husbands really need to eat three plus times a day? Ok, I'll just consider it a blessing that they are in my life so I can feed them.
I hope all of you have a wonderful and blessed Sunday.
Nancy
