Bow Retarded

Yesterday we had to put together 9 gift baskets that customers ordered. That's a lot of baskets, which is great! But it's also a lot of bows, which really sucks.

Mom is self-declared bow retarded. She had lots of practice, but just can't make a good looking bow. Unfortunately, I think I'm about the same minus the practice. It took about an hour and a half to two hours for me to make all those bows. I would take a picture, but the baskets are already gone.

Now we have to make several more bowed baskets for our craft show this weekend. But this time, we're buying pre-made bows.

I am a brilliant bow-tier, my mother taught me mercilessly. The men in my family however, completely lack the bow-tying gene. Or they are just faking so we have to do it.
