Hey Ed! Haven't looked up the ships yet, but I've always been totally fascinated with that particular hobby -- and the ships in a bottle also. I no longer have the coordination or mind for that intricate a hobby, but I really admire all of you who do this sort of thing.
Personally I love miniatures, like dollhouse furniture and accessories, or just items to paint to make them special for you or family or friends. (example, mini dogs and cats painted like your own) Also enjoy making mini Indian teepees and hogans and stuff, but very limited on these anymore. Also now rarely make and dress Indian dolls.
Still make dreamcatchers of all sizes, though the larger ones are difficult now since the web has to be very tight until you get to the end and can tie it off. Very painful at this point, but still make a few for special folks. Determined to continue at least smaller sizes, 3 to 7 inches, forever.
Also make earring-sized dreamcatchers, but don't do much beadwork anymore, other than a few bracelets or earrings.
Thanks, Ed, for sharing your craft and for starting this hobby thread!
