For the little ones:
The beginnings of a cactus-shaped rattle, with French knots for spikes, and an embroidered face! I think I'll post a tutorial if it turns out alright.
And for me, a ric-rac cactus, newly acquired from May's Greenhouse. I had admired this plant for some time because of its weird Seuss-like antlers. When I discovered it was named for the perennial trim favorite, I knew it had to be mine!
