My Crafty Daughter

I'm sure I've asked this before but do we pass on our craftiness in the genes?

Elizabeth 'had an idea' and spent ages over the weekend making this pencil, bracelet and ring for her friend Myah;



She made rather alot of pencils;



She had a box of assorted beads, some embroidery thread and a roll of double sided sticky tape. I think they look rather professional to say she is only seven;


Today I have been walking in the snow, sewing like a mad woman (not bags for the shop but a belated birthday gift), visiting SAMS, completing my first aid course (feel free to drop dead, have a heart attack, stroke, choke on something or drop into a diabetic coma now I know what to do), got a certificate and everything, making chilli beans for tea and munching on yogurty raisins (mmmmmmmmmmm)!!

Will, hopefully, be able to show you today's sewing project tomorrow when said item has been delivered (depending on snow, of course).

The pencils are fab! All I've passed on is an ability to make a mess!

Your daughter definitely has the crafty gene! Not sure where I get my craftiness from as my mam can't even thread a needle!
