This last week has seen lots more of these coming off the crochet hook.
I'm trying to build up a supply of items that I can stock my little online shop with. I don't want to launch it until I have a reasonable amount of things to put in it!
Some of these corsages will also be going to my mum. The ladies in her church have a meeting at the end of the month where they will be selling things to raise money for the church's Missionary appeal. I've found some perfect sized boxes to put each corsage in, to package them up even prettier.
Moving back to the subject of my shop.
I also can't launch it until I get a suitable name for it. I'm coming up with nothing so far. I want it to reflect the folksy, handmade side of everything. It won't just be crocheted items in it. I want it to reflect me too, my patriotic side, my arty side. I wanted a Gaelic name at first, but then realised it was probably no good to have a name that no-one could pronounce!
All suggestions will be most gratefully received. I might even send a wee corsage to the person who comes up with a name I want to use!!
Onto James' project now.
He has a presentation to give to his class on Friday about his personal project. This term the teacher let them choose their own individual projects and he has chosen Roman Gladiators.
He plans to talk about the different types of Gladiators, their weapons, how they fought etc.
He has drawn a poster with the different Gladiators on it, complete with fold down flap showing their weapons.
He has also photocopied handouts to give to everyone, made a papier-mache helmet and made a short Lego animation of a Gladiator fight that he plans to show at the end!
I may be biased, but I think he has quite a talent for art!
