I'm a total blogging slacker these days. Summer is just moving along and we are busy just being. It's pretty great.
I said I'd be back with something crafty, but I bet you didn't think it'd be friendship bracelets. Truth is, neither did I. My girls came home from camp and raided my embroidery supplies. They started braiding bracelets for their ankles and doing hair wraps on their dolls. Jane asked me if I knew how to make different kinds of bracelets. Well, yes I do! I made the above bracelet for Jane earlier this week and am now working on a pink and orange one for Kate. I sit at the pool, completely in the shade, chatting with my friends and making bracelets. Today I gave a 30 second tutorial to a few girls. I have a feeling that we'll be seeing a lot of these in the coming weeks.
These are the kind I made when I was a kid and I am totally doing it from memory. Yay! Jane started a four string one in yellow and white. I would like to try my hand at something a bit more complex and while trolling the interwebs, I found this site. Awesome - patterns, instructions, pdfs to download. I'm going to try an arrow one next.
All right. Back to summer. Catch you next week.
