Title: Bragging on my sister
Post by: HelenWheels on January 26, 2010, 10:21:58 PM
I am useless when it comes to this type of thing. I have 10 left thumbs and no talent.

However, my baby sister is blessed with an abundance of talent in the crafting arena. Let me show you what she crocheted and gave me for Christmas this year:

She's also been doing a lot of loom weaving:

Wow, that is some beautiful stuff. I have not done any loom weaving, but saw some at a fall festival once, it was very pricey, but man was it pretty.

Nice work - love the blanket with the horses - does she need another sister?  I don't have one and am so jealous!!! ;D

Certainly! You can be an honorary Sisto!

(When my brother was a toddler, he referred to his three older sisters collectively, as the "Sistos").

Wow - since hanging out on this forums I've gained some "Sistos" and another daughter.  So awesome!  Thanks HW!
