Be Still & Know Slimline Card and Rope Baskets

 Hello and happy weekend to you ! Thank you all so much for the kind words on the passing of my father. 

I took out some of my Greetery stamps and dies, along with my Simon Says Stamp Slim Line Envelope die.

I used Botani Cuts die and added some larger leaves from Lovely Blossoms.

I posted this on My Instagram 
I wanted to make something for each of the siblings ( I am one of 9) I asked for shirts of my father’s, thinking for a quilt. I wanted to try making rope baskets and then got the idea I could cut strips of my dads shirts and wrap them around the rope and make one for each sibling. Well I completed them in time . Just a little something of my dad for each to have .  I made these using my Bernina sewing machine zigzagging round and round I wrapped the shirt piece around the rope as I was sewing.

Thank you for the visit and I hope you have a wonderful day.

My father passed away yesterday, I was blessed to be holding his hand when he died at home with many family members with him. ( kidney cancer)
I made his favorite cake the year before. Thank you dad for the gift of faith and loving mom for over 66 years.  You will be missed by many. May you Rest In Peace in our Lords loving arms.
Love you dad.

Paper Blooms

 Hello and happy Sunday to you. Hope you are all doing well and get to enjoy some family time making wonderful memories.

  We've been blessed with lots of family time, laughter, mostly happy tears and sometimes sad tears. We all need each other and I feel so blessed to have such a large family and wonderful friends .  
I pray that you all have the same. 
All that family time takes away from crafting and quilting but I wouldn't trade any of it for less time with family.

I did get to enjoy some time in the craft room early in the morning and a chance to play with these dies and stamps from the Greetery.  
I cut the blooms in white, then used blending brushing and distressed oxide inks to color the the blooms.

 Hope you all have a good week ahead filled with lots of blessing.
