Phew. Finished just in time for Sarah’s visit. I enjoyed the basket project for our CRAFT along, but want to try it with thicker rope next time.

  1. Super cute! Is that a gift to your houseguest with all the goodies inside? Very cute idea!

  2. Very cute. Although if I knew I’d get a basket full of goodies at your place, I’d come and stay! 🙂 Sarah was super sweet.

  3. Kelli, beautiful job! My crafting “engine” was down for a month and a half with the new job, the “goop” (my cough and sniffles that lingered and lingered and lingered…and made the sofa look extra-comfy every night…LOL) etc., but I’m feeling it revving up now, along with my “get fit” engine! Thanks for continuing to inspire me. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again–I think you are awesome, AmazingGirl! Happy Sunday and I hope your week is off to a whizbang start! Big Hugs 🙂

  4. Super cute basket, great job Kelli!
