Mary has taken up card-making, knitted scarf making and jewelry making like crazy the last couple of weeks. She is busy making handmade gifts for everyone on her list. She has a few things made for her godmother Sue, all of her teachers, family and friends. I asked her if I could post a few of her handmade “things” in the next little while. She humoured me by reluctantly agreeing. She probably figured I’d post it on Facebook as an alternate and tag her, this would be less embarassing! Ha ha.
Here is a necklace she made for her friend Alyssa who moved to the east coast recently. A bunch from the class are making a parcel of things to send her as a surprise. I think it’s really nice to let her know they still love her and think of her! I think the necklace is pretty marvelous. Mary is 13 years old and has been an old pro for about a week at jewelry making! The photo doesn’t do it justice, the necklace splits into 3 strands of tiny beads after the last purple bead on both sides. It’s wrapped up now and ready to go to the east coast, so I can’t get another photo!
I think she has made one for me too. I know the one I hope it is!
Can’t wait until Christmas!
