Happy December, ladies!
One thing I love to do with a rope braid is to coil it in a bun. If you go one way, it makes a loose, loopy look like the bun above. If you go the other way, you get a tighter, woven-looking bun.
And, if you twist the rope as you go around, you get a pretty rosette.
I know some of my lovely readers will have already heard this story, but I thought I’d share it with the rest of you. Monday night is when I have piano lessons, and last night I was making dinner when tragedy struck. *Dun-dun-DUN* As I was shredding some cheese for a casserole, I slipped and accidentally shredded the skin off the side of my thumb. Let’s just say that my previously perfectly prepared pieces were performed with less precision and panache than potentially possible prior to my pathetically painful peripheral perforation. Ok, I’ll end this pedantic parody of a paragraph. 😉
