School holidays - Day 6

Miss Tizz wrote a story for me, and I thought I'd share, including the overuse of exclamation marks LOL.

Once upon a time there was a very mean dragon named Lolly. He was named Lolly because he was the only dragon made out of lollies! The sort was cloudy. If you don't know what cloudy is, it is a lolly that when you suck it, it gets bigger! Lolly is mean because he gets angry because everyone eats him. Even his mum and dad!

Finally he says to everyone "Stop eating me!!"

They stopped eating him and also stopped being his friends!!!!

He was so sad he was not going to give up finding new friends!!!!!

Every night and day he searched and searched. But he could not find new friends!!!

But one day when he was about to give up, he remembered their favourite place - ACT!!!! Lolly went there straight away to find his friends!!

At last he found them. They thought he was here to tear down the place, so they hid. He found them again. He said he just wanted to say sorry, and he did!!!

They all became friends again!!!

The end

In other news, I promised an update on the stripey crocheted thing. It's a bag (almost), and it's been fulled and dried now. Didn't felt and shrink as much as I thought it would, but then our water temperature is limited to 55 degrees C, and hotter water probably would have been more effective. Regardless, I'm happy with my first foray into fulling. Now I just need to line it and finish making up.

great story and drawing!!!

re the bag, might it be worth trying again with boiling water added? you'll find it much stronger if felted properly (it's not hard to hand felt btw ;)) looks good though!

For someone with an apparently fully functioning brain, I am sometimes pretty dense. Of course! I have access to a textiles person IRL! Ok now - I need detailed instructions, and please speak slowly, because I'm new at this ;)
