Flower has a new home

Santa came early for me this year. The little dark ukulele is called Lani for Lanikai. She’s a soprano who once belonged to a friend who had to downsize. I got her at the last NM Duclcimer Festival. The lighter, “concert” Uke I got at the Real McCoy Folk shop in Madrid, NM. Her name is Flower because she has fairies and flowers, as well as a flower for a sound hole. They are nice additions to my instrument family. Now I just have to learn to play them.

I made Flower a new case from the zebra-rose surface design I made through Spoonflower.com, as well as some zebra fabric I found at a local thrift store. I added a small, pink-zippered “pick pocket” on the end of the case using a left over zipper from some other project. I think Flower looks quite comfy in her new travel case. What do you think?


Happily retired! Renewing my interests in music and art. Hoping to improve my skills in all creative areas.
