Setting:

Warm winter weather, drowning in school work and ready for a craft break.

Characters:

My boss, my father, Killian (cat roommate)

Plot:

My boss was cleaning out her craft closet and gave me this circular piece of wood.  I’ve been wanting to do string art for sometime and with this new gift I figured it was time.  I nailed 11 nails around the perimeter of the wood (an odd number of nails looks cooler in my opinion).  To evenly space the nails I did some awesome math and work with a protractor 😉  I then tied embroidery thread around a nail and skip counted nails by 2’s until I got back to the nail I started on.  Then I switched thread colors and repeated the process skip counting by 3’s, 4’s and on and on and repeated it until I was satisfied with the layering and colors.

My father helped me nail in the stubborn nails, Killian helped by tangling up thread.
