I'm wrapping up a couple of projects before beginning an intensive rug making bonanza. I hope to complete a painting and a blanket which are both gifts. Also, I indulged in some bracelet making during my recent lake vacation. I under-anticipated the length of time it took to complete a friendship bracelet. I have childhood memories of pinning them to the seat in front of me and knotting all the way to Minnesota. While I recall making them took time, I seemed to whip multiples out on a single vacation. I'll attribute this reality to small girlish wrists.
