The other day Elisabeth decided she wanted to work on some embroidery. I had her draw a picture on white paper. Then I lightly traced her picture onto some white cotton fabric with a pencil. Next I set her up with her choice of floss and a needle with a not so sharp point. She loved being able to pick out her own colors! I briefly showed her how to make the running stitch and she was ready!
She spent about an hour or so making three different creations....a balloon, a flower, and a duck. As soon as she finished one she was ready to begin another. I think she is hooked. She is so proud of her work....and she should be. I am too!!!
