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,

YouTube Video #5 is up--Upsetting the Sides of Your Basket

Hi Everyone,

I am so happy because I figured out how to post my blog's website on youtube without holding up the piece of paper as in previous videos. I also put a caption in on my youtube video that says to be sure to have your reed "rough side up" so that as you upset the stakes of your basket the rough side will be to the inside of your basket. I still can't figure out how to delete the initial silly expressions on my face as this uploads through Blogger. I laugh because when I start and stop my videos as I make them, my expression looks normal, but Blogger starts my videos a bit later or cuts off just a bit at the end. Oh well. This video runs right at four minutes.

I hope you all enjoy the video.

Baskets of Blessings,

Another great video! They're getting better and better.

The term "upsetting the stakes" always reminds me of something we learned back when we participated in 18th century historical reenactments. Our ancestors referred to carving a ham as "spoiling the ham." Our English language cracks me up. :)
