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

Embroidery Library's New Christmas Lookbook


Dear Friends,

I love to look at great inspiration on the web and yes, it is time to be thinking of our Christmas embroidery projects. This week Embroidery Library released a free Christmas Lookbook that I am happy to share it with you here. If you didn't get a chance to see it or missed it in your mail, you can look at it right here on my blog. Just click the "Click to Read" button on the photo.

Yes they have some beautiful designs, but also take note in how they use them. The designs are on pillows, tote bags, tags, turned into ornaments and much more. Let this lookbook also be an inspiration to use your current designs in your stash in some new and fun ways. And of course, it is also fun to get a few new updated designs each year for the holidays.

Enjoy!

Nancy

Machine Embroidery Let's Celebrate Pennant Banner Alphabet Starts Today

Let's Celebrate Banner by Embroidery It
Dear Friends, Banners are so much fun and bring a smile to everyone's face. They are a perfect decoration for any season or event. So I'm excited to share with you my newest alphabet design titled "Let's Celebrate". "Let's Celebrate" is an applique pennant banner alphabet designed for the 5 x 7 hoop. I have created a fun and whimsical alphabet that will be ideal for birthdays, baby and bridal showers, holidays, and other celebrations. Each letter has just a touch of applique that retain a raggy edge.
Let's Celebrate Banner Letter A by Embroidery It
I've stitched my alphabet here on felt but fabric or burlap would also look great. Each week I will release a new letter and then the previous letter will be for sale in my Etsy shop.

Visit my website at www.embroideryit.com and scroll down to the bottom to get to get the letter A.  Instant download in PES, VIP, VP3, JEF, HUS, and DST formats.

Please be sure to tell your embroidery friends to hop on over here so they can get started with this set here at the beginning.

Enjoy the letter A this week.

Blessings,
Nancy
