Woven with Love

I am so blessed to have a life-long friend with a big heart and talented hands. For my birthday, my great friend “S” created this for me:

Hand-made with love.

Isn’t this gorgeous???

Beautiful weave!

There is a lot of time invested in this gorgeous Nantucket style basket. A lot of time.

The basket has a wooden handle and base.

“S” put extra love into this basket at every possible opportunity. The inside bottom of the basket has a personalized scrim. “S” had it made using art from one of our Christmas cards, which are designed by my husband. It features our dear Scottie, Scamp (who has since crossed the Rainbow Bridge) and little Scottie, Mitty, who is our dear companion.

I can tell you that this gift brought tears to my eyes. The pure love that went into the creation of this basket is truly a gift in itself.

Woven with love.

Thank you, dear friend. I will treasure this gift of love forever and ever.

    I have made one basket, it took forever to finish and didn’t look half as incredible as your friend S looked. Such a lovely gift and friendship!
