Flower Bracelet

Hello again.
I got nuthin' fer ya. Exceptin' this purdy bracelet that one of the kid's friends made after school last week.
 A nice mixture of braiding some greens
 And intertwining flowers in it.
 Yes, 'tis nice indeed.

The weather has turned to lovely here. Sunny, warm, clear. The kids have actually played outside for more than one day. 2 huge boxes from a neighbour's new patio furniture helped a lot. It is calling for the possibility of rain and the kids keep asking if their boxes will dry out. We'll see.

Hope you're enjoying some good weather too!

a bit of looming...

You're still coming back? thanks. Sorry it's only once a week and not much crafting going on. I'm still de-cluttering. Here a good tip: If you bring a box of donation to Goodwill, don't go in the store and bring more stuff home!!

But how could I pass up this baby!?

 A fashion weaving loom at that.
 Love the comb. I also made a shuttle you can see in the 1st picture. It came with a long plastic needle, but how do you have a ton of yarn behind that every time you pass it through without getting it all tangled? Neve is loving it. She may only do 2 lines at a time, but she goes to it a few times a day.
 Here's a question for you gardeners...
What are the spiderwebby things on these plants? Is it indeed some kind of web or egg covering thing? Sorry, my gardening language is not very elaborate. Your knowledge is most appreciated.
That's it for now.
Thanks for looking,
