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 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.


  1. Marybeth, your card is simply stunning, so very beautiful! And what a wonderful way to preserve something that your father wore as a reminder of him. What a great gift to give your siblings. It is priceless!

  2. That card is STUNNING!! I love the beautiful flowers coming in from the right. What a fabulous way to remember your father by. Such a wonderful gift to your siblings.

  3. Your card is lovely Marybeth and so are those bowls. Amazing!! I've never seen that done but what a great idea. I have one of my dads shirts as a pillow cover on the bench in our entryway. Sending you warm hugs.

  4. A beautiful spring bouquet, Marybeth ... so wonderfully presented in the Nordic frame! How lovely to use one of your Dad's shirts in your gorgeous rope baskets ... your siblings must have been delighted ... such a thoughtful gift for each of them! Bon dimanche! Hugs, Anita :)

  5. Your card is so pretty Marybeth and oozing with spring. But my goodness, what a beautiful gift for each of your siblings. I'm sure they will cherish these.

  6. Your card is so beautiful! What a thoughtful, amazing gift you gave to each of your siblings!

  7. Your card took my breath away, Mb! It should be saved as an Easter table decoration year after year! And your memorial gift baskets for your siblings are beautiful! What a fantastic idea! A little bit of you, too, was woven into each basket as you spent time making them with love and care! Bless you! Happy Easter! Hugs, Darnell

  8. Like Darnell said, your card is a treasure to keep out each Easter season. I can't think of a nicer way to remember your father and care for your siblings too. Blessings as your heart continues to heal from your loss.

  9. Beautiful card, and nice gift idea with your father's shirts!

  10. Many people like to wear full-body sportswear when exercising. In fact, proper sportswear will not only reduce the probability of sports injuries. Sportswear is still a sense of ritual. When you are struggling whether to start exercising, you can try to put on a set of sportswear first, then this small step may save your exercise plan for the day. So if you don’t want to exercise, put on a set of ,,sportswear.Niksa
