Since several people have asked me if I was going to do a tutorial for these, I decided to go forward with that as my next project. The cool thing about the way I make these is that it's almost foolproof, easy to have different areas of color without distortion and all you need to get started is a line drawing! Since Christmas is right around the corner, I'm thinking ornaments… maybe elves with red and green beaded legs…hmmmmm….

Since it is sooooooooooooo hot in Mississippi this summer, we on decided a laua theme for the summer party this year. Think sandy beach, grass skirts, lots of colorful flowers and, of course, flamingos.

Last week I complained about how the temperature in Mississippi is making caning difficult. I've gotten several good suggestions and I've put some of them into use. I now have two fans blowing over my work area and I also have a gel pack that usually lives in my freezer that I now pull out when I'm caning. Overall it's working pretty good and I'm not having to drop the temperature in the whole house while I'm caning. Not a perfect solution but it works!
