lowly worm






A Lowly Worm was made this morning by a little girl and her nana. Her mama helped a little, too. Unfortunately, the pattern for Lowly had been torn out of the book so we had to wing it. But he turned out just right.

Happy weekending! xo

Hah! And he even has a feather in his cap. . . Richard Scarry's books were on my daughter's (and now, granddaughter's) shelves, too.

LOVE it----and all the making implies.

Chris -- thank you. The feather came out of a nearby vase of northern flicker feathers... and the making was so much more than just making, you're right!

Janet, it will be a cherished memory, the first time we've made something of this magnitude! Where in SD? -- my husband is from Mitchell.

I LOVE HIM!!! My son loved the RS books and Lowly Worm was just so adorable. You've really captured him :)

PS On a visit to Elk Point, SD we stopped in Mitchell and visited the Corn Palace (of course!) on our way home. :)

The first of many things you'll make together! I think of those cute little knitted dolls I used to make (knitted bodies, t-shirt type cloth for the head, all stuffed with wool) or the acorn headed navity set -- how much fun that would be to make with a grandchild!

Thanks, Deanna -- he is pretty cute!

Nancy, of course, you HAD to see the Corn Palace!!!

This brings back memories, big time -- how you could spend a half-hour on one page looking at all the detail in the Busytown Book, remember that one?

Jo, there's definitely a lot to look forward to. Glad I kept so many of my Waldorf craft books in addition to this RS one!
