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,

Thanksgiving in Kansas

Hi Friends,We are back home in New Mexcio after our visit to my parents in Kansas.  It was a nice but very short trip.  We celebrated an early Christmas with my side of the family.  For my new readers, here is who is in the picture.  Front row, our Emily, age 16, who I talk about all the time, my mom, our son Timothy who is now 14.  Back row, our oldest Katie who is 18 and my dad.  Mike and I are behind the camera.

What a blessing it is to have family.  My parents are in their mid 80's now.  My mom is a breast cancer survivor and my dad has finished chemo for prostate cancer.  His hair is so thin and gray now and since the chemo it has come back in with some curl.  Funny how things related to health change our hair.  With every pregnancy of mine, my hair got curlier!

I love my family soooo much!  We enjoyed your traditional turkey dinner with all the fixins.  On Friday I took mom shopping after lunch.  After the crazy black Friday crowds had died down and helped her get her Christmas shopping done.  Then yesterday we had an uneventful car ride home.  Katie drove the entire 10 hours home!  She wanted to!!  I pulled out my laptop and organized my photos on it as well as an enormous accumulation of documents I'd created over the years.

Today is quiet.  We'll be going to church in about an hour and I am going to make a menu plan and grocery list for the next couple of weeks.

I hope you all had a truly blessed Thanksgiving.  We have so much to be thankful for.  I've said it before and I'll say it again, I'm thankful for each of YOU!
This is just a pretty picture I took from the car during our ride home.  It was taken in New Mexico as the sun was setting.  This week I had time to reflect and think about goals and what I want for 2012.  One of the things I'd like is to become a better photographer and to document more of my life.

Baskets of blessings,
