Devorah spent a very creative week with us in Las Vegas.  Several years ago I taught her the basics of crochet.  She now crochets baby blankets, baby booties, toys, scarves and hats both for sale and to donate to hospitals. She has been giving crochet lessons where she lives.  She even helped me with my crocheting.

Devorah crocheted "Harold the Seahorse" to give to a child and crocheted many scarves.  I bought her 32 skeins of yarn for these beautiful ruffled scarves and before she left for home she had crocheted a number of them which she plans to sell.

When she was at our home the last time, she started to needle felt a figure.  This time she finished "Zaidy Fishel", a very handsome one tooth guy.

A couple of weeks before she came to visit I asked her if she would like to learn how to weave on a triangular loom where when you weave one side the other side gets woven at the same time. She wove a triangle and she said when she returns she wants to weave other triangles on this portable loom and crochet them together for either a blanket or a stole.
