Twilight Tatting & Feargal and William's Whirlwind Tour Around the World In Just One Afternoon

My dear friend Rayanna had a birthday over the summer and I knew she was reading the Twilight series, so my gift to her was the book "The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner" by Stephanie Myer.  I wanted to tat a special bookmark for her, so I came up with a Twilight themed bookmark.  The Apple and Bat are patterns by Mark Myers.  

Now onto Feargal and  William's whirlwind tour around the world in just an afternoon.  The Vandergrift Library, where I work, had a summer reading program that took the children around the world.  Miss Scarlett made all the arrangements for Feargal and  William  to visit many countries around the world. 

First we departed from Vandergrift International Airport and flew to the Cayman Islands.  Feargal and William had fun at the beach and can even be found climbing palm trees.

Then we stopped in Costa Rica where they played with the monkeys and were swinging from the vines.

A quick stop in Antarctica to see the penguins and they were off again.  It was too cold to stay long in Antarctica.
SSHHHH.....Feargal didn't let his Mum know he was stopping in Ireland for a quick visit. He just wanted to check on his pot of gold.

Africa was fun!  They got to ride on the giraffes and lions.

Here they can be seen visiting with the Koala bear in Australia.

The last stop on the tour was China where they learned about Chinese culture and they also learned  how to use chopsticks.   

I sure had fun with these little guys.  But it was time for Feargal to move on.  He is now in a new location visiting with another Leprechaun relative of his.  I'm sure you will hear more of Feargal's Leprechanu adventures soon.
