mission accomplished!

well, thanks for your help. They are officially called "Bamileke Feather Headdress", so I was sort of on the right track - gee they are expensive, but effective I think.
see more here if you would like to buy one. I am a little obsessed by them. Also called 'Tsa Ntang Disc' they are traditionally worn by royal dancers of the Kuosi Society during important ceremonies held by the Chief. Originally made from parrot feathers, a symbol of prosperity, they are seen as rare objects of beauty possessing the positive qualities of birds.

Well, here she is............

Its a very proud moment - and only really now am I starting to feel the impact of school - everyday, 9am til 3:30pm - I can really understand what people say - make the most of those younger years! so true, but so hard sometimes too! She is so full of life and loving every moment of school - hope it stays like that.

that's what friends are for.............

hi there - lots been happening around here - not much in the crafty way, but more to do with the kiddywinks.
Number one has spread her very beautiful butterfly wings and started school, well she is 6 and all. I think we were both very ready for this to happen and so far so good. She has transitioned beautifully and every day has been really exciting for her. Shes making new friends, she got her grade 6 Buddy (Sean - yes a boy!), she's even learning the school prayer - so much for my little girl to take in.
I will post a photo of her on her first day soon.

Now back to "thats what friends are for"............. take a peek here - my very special friend has been doing a little (or a lot!) of sewing and hand quilting for me - how lucky am I.....................she has a real talent you know - she just knows how to bring a quilt alive, and to think I get to keep some of her magical work, and call it my own - how can I ever thank her enough????
