That craftiest of bloggers, Karisma, wants us to share something we made with our own two little hands... She says:
Well there are not any really! But you know, we all know that you made your kids so lets NOT choose them this time. (After all you did not make them with your hands or feet did you?)
And for those of you who are freaking out because you make "everything" with your hands, how about you just choose a few of your favourites!)
Those of you who are freaking out because "You never make things with your hands". Get off your lazy butt and make something! You have four days.....now get to it! (You could always bake a cake!) The possibilities are endless!
Well, I do a lot with my hands. I write, I bake circus cakes, I do LOTS of home improvements - but I figure you might be tired of seeing my redone bathroom. And the other projects are just half-done and not very impressive.
I've always wanted to be a crafty sort of person. Lack of time is my greatest foe in this arena. So I have to go back in time to find something I made with my own hands. The one thing I made that I was most proud of I couldn't find. It's in a box in my house somewhere and I know I saw it recently because I was looking for something else. It's a doll that I made for my grandmother probably 20-25 years ago. I was still married to my first husband when I made it. But I haven't the energy to go looking through boxes to find her right now, so I will share some of my earliest efforts:
UPDATE: My mother sent me this link that explains about the story behind Myfanwy. (Which also corrected my spelling of her name!!! Red-faced).
