The little girls at preschool always make me smile. The pink and glitzey group really try to out-glam each other. I think they are at the age of just beginning to pick out their own school clothes (which is a good thing) and they are certainly learning to express themselves via their wardrobe. Then we have the blue jean and sweatshirt gals, and a small minority of cow-girl types. Cowboy boots and western themed t-shirts. The boys seem to be totally oblivious to what they wear, with perhaps the exception of their footwear. Anyway - your girls just made me think of my preschoolers.

The driftwood is amazing! And thanks for the beader critique. Not sure I'll ever get that far into beaded knitting, but nice to have an opinion filed away. Any spinning going on??


So now I have endorsements from two skilled beaded shawl knitters on the Fleegle beader. I suspect I'll become an advocate too when I get to my Evenstar.

The dress and tunic are lovely--I particularly like the combination of fabrics on the tunic.

I'm with you on the complex. I find being engrossed allows me to block out all the stressors, whereas with so-called "simple knitting" I my mind just wanders to the things I want to turn off for a while.


And will there be a new dress for *you* for the Tea, as well?
Love your photos! Though I thought the first one of the driftwood was a shadow puppet before I read the description...

Great photos, Dorothy. I love your sewing projects, too. Interesting about the beader...I'll have to think about trying it.
