WOW!  Frannie did it!  You know, this really wasn't that easy, she stuck with it, and to me that is the most important part.  (Yes, she did have a little push/help from me now and then, but we all need a little encouragement sometimes - right?).

Drum roll, please... (drum roll - get it?)

Twelve miniature drums (about 1" tall) made from empty spools of thread (why do I save these things? - the plastic kind - not my vintage wood spools that I have been collecting), cardboard from a cereal box, bits of scrapbook paper, pipe cleaners, leftover gold knitting thread, a round paper punch, scissors and a glue stick.

...11 Pipers Piping, 10 Lords A Leaping, 9 Ladies Dancing, 8 Maids A Milking, 7 Swans A Swimming, 6 Geese A Laying, 5 Gold RIngs, 4 Calling Birds, 3 French Hens, 2 Turtle Doves, and A Partridge In A Pear Tree

My favorite project was the Four Calling Birds and I'll definitely consider making more of those (in my own way) for next year.
