Good evening, everyone...

This is your weekly WAYWO diary; a place to share and promote your creative projects. Whether your creativity is expressed in clay, yarn, paper, ink, paint, writing, cloth, metal, topiary, stone, tofu ... the WAYWO Group wants to hear from you! Strut your stuff in the comments or boldly volunteer to host one of these weekly diaries yourself. Joining the group is easy! Simply contact our fearless leader. There's also a Yahoo Group which sends one reminder/week, and may be used to post when the diary is up.
I haven't made very many new things the past couple of weeks...I have used my youngest daughter's time off from school to teach her to crochet.  

Meet me below the orange umber yarn tangle...

My youngest daughter is eleven... and not very patient. I had taught her older sisters to crochet much earlier than eleven.  This break from school, she decided that she R E A L L Y wanted to learn, and I had some time off from work.  So, we started with chaining...

And we argued for about 30 minutes... until I figured out that the only way to do this would be "knee to knee" with her facing me.

Maddie is left handed... and I am not.  It did not occur to me until that moment that facing each other knee to knee would be the mirror she needed to be able to see what to do.

IT WORKED!!! She chained, and chained, and chained... and then she wanted to make flowers like mommy was making.  So we made chain flowers:

Maddie's first flower
She was SO proud of herself! :-)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
