Fran and Amelie are really enjoying learning stitches at the moment. I’ve got a lot of time for this kind of practical life activity; we did loads of binca sewing when i was at school and it taught me to plan things, taught me creativity and patterns and planning and colours that suited each other. It taught me to stitch neatly and how much a small error could show up and spoil the look of something. And it was fun and easy and helped me learn how to measure stitches so they were always the same. Excellent all round.
Anyway, F is still working on something fairly big, learning as many stitches as she can but Amelie has completed this rather lovely little sampler, her first one.
Will have to take a proper camera one later as the colours are really beautiful.
