Last Sat, the KBCC had a session on making animals from drinking straw. Something new to me and my 2 children who tagged along. Betsy followed a book to show us how to weave the straw. Turned out it was similar to weaving a grasshopper using palm leave, as my boy discovered. Ivan grasped the concept pretty fast, and he completed the goldfish much in style. Joey and myself were struggling, but we consoled ourselves we explored something new :)
Ivan did these 2 fishes himself and I'm so proud of him!
Look what I received in the mail - Jon's giveaway of her new book! I sure didn't notice the specifications of the book, and was so surprised at the size of the book - a petite and handy size to carry around. I have seen Jon's fabulous snowflakes that everyone was tatting but alas, I'm not too keen to tat snowflakes; on the other hand, this book on tatted cabone rings and with lots of beads appeals to me. Let's see what I'll turn them into!
Joey was pleading me to tat 2 "A" for her classmate, who loves her tatted "J" bookmark used in her school diary so much, so here they are: Teri Dusenbury's pattern tatted with Flora 20 threads. They chose the colours, I said they were pretty good choices.
