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

Woven Sunflower - Check out the Petals!


This morning I was bouncing around from blog to blog.  You know how that is when you click on a link and it leads you somewhere and from there you see something of interest that leads you elsewhere.  Well, that is what happened this morning and I ran across a blog called My Great Finds.  Linda, the blog owner found this woven sunflower at a thrift store.  I thought it was neat.  The petals are made from coconut shells!  I can't quite tell about the rest of it though.  Looks like the center is made of twine or a cord but I'm not sure.  Anyway, I thought it was inspiring to incorporate coconut shells into a piece like this.  Can't you just imagine a free form basket that has some coconut shells added for interest? 

Hope you are all enjoying your fall.  We are gathering the last of our tomatoes over this next week.  The leaves on the trees are turning just beautiful right now.  God's paintbrush is in full swing with yellows, oranges, and reds.  I love the colors, but it means that winter is just around the corner.  (yuck).

Have a blessed weekend everyone,
Nancy
