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 Fantastic Basket for a Gift

Dear Friends,
I just think this is the greatest idea for a gift.  A sweet friend of mine, who has asked when I post that she'd like to remain anonymous, made 11 of these for teacher gifts.  These are baskets that she has woven and on the wooden bases are her children's names, in their own handwriting, that have been laser engraved.  Wouldn't a teacher or relative just treasure this!!!  Cute Cute CUTE!!! 
I've never worked with a wood burning tool, but I wonder if you couldn't do something similar with your child's handwritten name.
I just love this idea and honestly, I wish I'd have thought of it when my children were younger.
Thank you dear friend for letting me share this.
Happy Weaving,

Cute idea!

I did something similar in a quilt I made. I used niece and nephew's signature from a Christmas card,scanned and enlarged it on the computer, put it on one of the blocks and embrodiered it. It was a family quilt for them. They will always have their handwriting from a young age. They loved it.
