Made this for Kenzie. It’s my first ever project on a floor loom and took 45 hours and $75 in raw materials, but it’s worth its weight in gold. We both love it very much.
Kenzie is absolutely enthralled with the traditional Chinese lion dance. She wanted to play with her puppet, so I put on a YouTube video for her to get some context. Since then, we’ve been watching YouTube lion dance videos non-stop. I wish she could’ve seen the one at our wedding reception, she would’ve loved it. I can’t wait till she experiences them in person.
We bundled up the family and caught the SS Badger from Muskegon, WI across Lake Michigan to Ludington, MI. Hit Silver Lake Sand Dunes, Pentwater, Ludington, Fennville for lunch with friends, St. Joe’s for the Carousel and fountains, New Buffalo for dinner at the Stray Dog along with a concert and fireworks at the beach. Then back home to Evanston to catch the parade!
