If you have read earlier posts, you will know that I already have quite a collection of baskets and bilums! However, when I discovered my young golf caddy liked to make bilums, I just had to have one more!!
Last week, after golf on Wednesday I took him to one of the Trade stores to buy the wool (less than $9 AUD!!!). ON Friday at golf he brought along what he had done to show me. Only had my cheap little local phone with me – but snapped a photo anyway!
No tools needed – he just makes it by twisting wool around fingers! He does a great job – very neat and even work!
Of course all the caddies wanted to be in a photo then!
We use Picasa to organise our photos. Whilst we were home at Christmas Nick uploaded the latest version – I was playing with some of the new functions and just loved this pencil sketch version of the above photo.
I printed it on A4 card and took it along to golf yesterday – and he just loved it!
I will upload a photo of the finished bilum – probably next week!
