Dewshine, boys and their last minute stuff. Right? I don't know about looms. I have had them with the yarn stash as far back as I remember. My native language is crochet but now I knit some, too and I have an easier time fumbling with the needles than using the loom. I just never got the hang of it. Long story short...I think your doll hat looks pretty darn nice and I'm trying to push you into joining me on the dark side (for knitting and tea!).
Both my daughter (17) and my son (10) are NOTORIOUS for last minute stuff. Of course, my spouse does that for the potlucks at work, so...
Let's just say that I have kept every single Halloween costume since forever, for just in case...and that I keep a pantry and freezer fully stocked with my "special recipe: sausage stuffing" supplies.
As for the native languages: let's just say that my native language does NOT involve yarn, and I'm not entirely certain that it involves any form of crafting supply, with the possible exception of glitter.
But, I keep plugging away at things, and they come out tolerable, so...
I'll happily join you on the dark side with knitting and tea, as long as profanity is allowed when I mess up!
Corsage making!! I made the ones for my sons dances. She will have so much fun! Plus for homecoming here in Texas we have mums. So I made the mums
Senior year they like a big mum and they need to be all white for their senior year. I made the one for her and she made the one for him. They matched pretty well!
My daughter generally makes flower crowns. She's quite good at it, and constantly mumbles things about "selling" them. Oddly, I keep buying the supplies, they get made and disappear, but there's never any of that "but I'll pay you back" money shown up. Funny how that happens! *grin* Fortunately, my local thrift store sells fake flowers in garbage bad sized lots for about $8.
Seriously, she's good at it, and wanted to make crowns for all 40 people. I told her the budget talked her out of that, and we negotiated down to wrist corsages (aka bracelets), because I have the supplies on hand.
I expect they will be gorgeous. She's using a combination of beads, fabric flowers and paper flowers, all put together on memory wire wrapped in floral tape. I'll post when she's done.
My son was in our culinary program. He had the best time! Does your daughter bake much at home?
Constantly! She is always trying out new recipes of all kinds. Her favorite type of cooking is baking, though. She has told me her dream is to open a bakery/confectionary.
