Remember my pretty beaded shoes? Well, I let daughter Alison try them on when she came to visit for Mother's Day. They fit her perfectly! No wonder they didn't fit me... Alison wears size 9. I wear 7 1/2. No amount of shrinking would have made those pretty little shoes fit my feet! I did think it was worth a mother/daughter Kodak moment. See?
Alison also took some time to try out my Cricket loom. She's a natural! So, I let her take it home with her. I guess that leaves me more time for tatting!
Yes, I've started another Spinning Wheel Glass Mat. I had to... I didn't have Jeff's directions on how to get started on the doily! I wouldn't have had the patience to count all those little holes around the edge. So I thank you, Jeff! That will probably be my next project. Oh, this one is Jungle Flower from Sherry Pence aka LadyShuttleMaker. The shuttles are from Grizzly Mountain Arts, and I love them for making this Spinning Wheel pattern... I can wind the entire skein of HDT onto the two shuttles and not have to join any threads! I love not having to add thread!
