Sometimes it’s nice to do something indoors, especially in the afternoons when it’s really hot. With cool crafts in mind (that don’t require too much clean up) we’ve been doing a little more embroidery.
For Carter we use card, I draw the shapes and punch the holes and he is away:
And Maia requested a bird so we used calico and an embroidery hoop, I drew a bird which she back stitched on beautifully.I was really impressed with how quickly she has progressed to small stitches. She’s come a long way since the first effort. This one has been made into a little pillow too 🙂Here they are together (these photos were taken to send to show the Nanas). Carter being an idiot looks remarkably like the face on his star….that photo’s just there to give you a giggle 🙂So what should we progress to? cross stitch, or long stitch? I confess to never embroidering anything in my childhood (and very little as an adult)! Any suggestions gratefully received.
Hope you are having a lovely weekend ♥ Janette x x
