I have wanted one of these little wooden gadgets for a long time, but they are out of production and very expensive on ebay. Imagine my surprise at finding two of them at the same time in a thrift shop and having to pay only 25 cents each! My idea was to make the squares in cotton crochet thread and decorate them with pulled thread embroidery or cross stitch and sew them together to make the yoke of a peasant top.
Speaking of Mexican Peasant tops, a nice lady from Mexico who is in the women’s group at church wore the most amazing Mexican dress today. I unfortunately did not have my camera, but she let me sketch it so I could remember the design details. I’ll try to draw up a better picture of the dress and post it soon.
