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,

Around the House

It has been a busy month for our oldest daughter Katie, who is about to turn 16. She has been taking scuba lessons and as a family we went camping last weekend to Santa Rosa, NM where she completed her open water dive and received her certification. She has joined the ranks of her parents as a diver. A little FYI about Santa Rosa. They have a sink hole called the Blue Hole. Many divers come here, and at least this weekend, the visibility was great. It has a constant temperature of 61 degrees so a wet suit is necessary. (I'll confess, I really only like to warm water dive.) There is speculation that the caverns under Santa Rosa continue all the way to Carlsbad Caverns and that this sinkhole, once cavern, is somehow connected. Mike went and dove with her and her class while I stayed at the campsite with our other children. Katie was a "happy camper" literally once she had finished all 5 dives.
Have a blessed weekend.
