On Wednesday work began on the wood-bead necklace intended as Mamma's return-from-New-York surprise present. Mabel and Daddy worked on it together. I took pictures of these beginnings but did not put them up right away for the world to see because that would have spoiled the surprise.
When I came back to babysit on Friday, Mabel told me the necklace was all finished. She and Daddy had boxed it up and hidden it away, ready to amaze Mamma on Saturday when she came home.
