Thelma S

map-pin South Pasadena, United States

OMG! Do you really want to know all of what inspires me.. my interest; they are fathomless and they continue to grow ... even though I'm 78 and walk with a cane.

For the present in my condition... I knit wayyyy too much; I teach it (on-call) at Jo-Ann Fabrics; I'm a Cub Scout Volunteer... mostly with crafts; I excel in that sort of thing... I could almost give up knitting to making stuff with cardboard, scissors, construction paper, Aieene's tacky glue, yarn(of course...), buttons, etc.... Forty years ago when I was a Girl Scout Leader... I'd be up until 2 or 3:00am.... working on projects that I could teach my girls. Now, I'm doing the same with little boys... Dreamcatchers, Indian baby rattles, drums, etc. I'm rather artistic... paint, draw, sketch... so, sketching little templates of Native American forms for designs (like for the drum)... then cutting them out of construction paper.... making a mess; but, it's fun. AND, my mentor ... the scout master thinks I'm amazing. S
