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,

The Albuquerque balloon fiesta is over.
The colors of leaves are just beautiful, especially along the Rio Grande.  (Our Rio Grande really isn't too Grande, more on the small side if you ask me.)
So it's time to get in gear for the holidays.  That's what's on my mind these days.  I've been busy making lists, cooking and my sewing machine has been going every day. 
I STILL have a few tomatoes, mostly green ones, on my plants!  I'm going to go out and pick the very last of them this morning because it is supposed to freeze tonight. 

I ran across this recipe for Green Tomato Relish from  It is  5 star review with almost 100 reviews so I'm anxious to try it and will work on it tomorrow after church.
I had bought some pumpkins for Halloween and the kids never got around to carving them.  Guess my babies are growing up as they were all busy and didn't have the interest this year.  So yesterday I spent my day cooking these big suckers and getting the meat out and froze it.  I used THESE directions for cooking and freezing my pumpkin.  We will have enough pumpkin for any recipe I want to make throughout the year!

Today is certainly colder and very cloudy with a little rain this morning.  I have to pick up some contacts for Katie, pick those remaining tomatoes and then spend the rest of the afternoon inside where it is warm.  A cup of hot tea and a good book sound wonderful.  I finish off tonight by having a Scentsy party.  A great day!

So Happy Fall ya'll and stay warm!
