Sitting at her rickety spinning wheel, Babs watched as the wool spun into a vibrant, purple yarn, a pale blue shining from the thread as it piled itself into the basket at the side of the wheel. This will be perfect! Babs thought to herself, the last of the glowing thread falling neatly into the pile. Her back cracking as she slowly bent down, the grey-haired woman picked up the basket and waddled over to her loom to begin her work.

Baskets full of shimmering threads of indigo, pink, turquoise, and more gathered round the loom as she started to thread the yarn into the loom, which was taller than she was. Practiced hands began to work, weaving the threads in and out, creating exquisite patterns and designs. "This will be my best piece of work yet!" she sighed happily to the cat that had curled up in one of the baskets. "This flying carpet will be absolutely splendid!"


TASK
Your task is to design your own genie lamp or magic carpet using the templates below. You may use any medium you prefer, but you only need to do one design.

After you've designed the lamp or carpet, you may write a short story about a character using the object you designed for an optional bonus ticket to August's Participation Raffle. Your story must feature the lamp or carpet you designed and be between 250 and 750 words.

We said design to let you know that you can add more in, to make the object unique and your own.

I think I know the answer, but I wanted to ask anyway.

It is possible to write more than 750 words, as long as the he story doesn’t get too lengthy?

Please tag me as I don’t watch this thread
