Dim, Vincent and Ofelia are going to have a go at some Macrame today!

Vincent has a coil of cord, Dim has a cinnamon stick and bernard and ofelia are looking one


Bernard wonders if that’s a good idea, given the mess they always get in with the Maypole!

Bernard talks to the other three

But they are sure it’ll be fine. First they tie the strings to the cinnamon stick and lay them out neatly. Ofelia loves cinnamon, she can’t stop sniffing it!
