Bragging on my sister
« 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:

She makes all kinds of nifty things:

So please indulge me - I am proud to call her my sister!

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.

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!
