What a nice lazy weekend spent with my family!
I have one child left at home and she is such a joy! I am very lucky! She's 15, but still sweet, a dedicated student and a driven dancer. It's not often that she even has time to be lazy, but this weekend (after five hours of dance) she and her friend wanted to make jewelry and wanted me to help. Yay! There are only so many of these kinds of days left for us before she flies out of our nest. If you like DIY's and you've never visited the blog Honestly WTF, you're missing out! We made the Wrap Bracelet, we tried the Braided Hex Nut Bracelet and got the materials to do the Shibori but ran out of time and energy.
The Wrap bracelet was really easy and came out looking great. We did not use the suggested materials for the braided hex nut bracelet-they used twine, we used embroidery thread-and this change resulted in lots of frustration and just an okay looking result.
We may try the hex nut bracelet again, as Sofie is insistent that we get it right!
