Fun with Friendship

Last week we were lucky enough to have Susan stay with us for a few days in between her trip to Scotland and her trip to the Northwest.

Unfortunately, it was still rainy and humid and just awful out, but she came with ideas for indoor fun.

Off we went to Michael’s to buy several bags full of embroidery floss for friendship bracelets.  At 37 cents per color, we nearly cleaned them out.

Oona took to it right away.  It kept her busy and quiet for quite awhile.  That Susan, she’s a genius!

I love these ocean-y colors.  I also think they would look good on Susan……..

Our creative mess.

Though Susan’s visits are always all – too brief, she left us a massive pile of colored floss so we can keep making more.

Rainy day activity? Done!

  1. Oh man, those friendship bracelets (especially the chevron-shaped one) take me RIGHT back to my youth! I LOVED making those and had a huge collection of embroidery floss colours 🙂

  2. My kids got boxes of embroidery floss while we were on vacation. I was able to get skeins for .10 each by buy a box of 105 (not DNC but still good quality) and using a 40% off coupon. I used the saved money to buy boxes and bobbins. I bought a winder too but we think it is easier and faster to wind by hand.
