Dreamcatcher

Dreamcatcher

I am so excited about this blog post because it is a collaboration with my daughter. My daughter, Eunice, loves everything about the Native Americans. She loves their history, culture, art, and stories. For many months, we talked about how it would be neat to make a dreamcatcher with a tatted doily as the center, and we finally took the time to put it all together. I am rather pleased with the way it turned out!
