I had forgotten just how fun it was to have a youngster in the house! Allie has been here for almost a month and we have had the best time! We went upstairs this afternoon and sewed together. I bought her a learning to sew kit and while I machine embroidered a retreat bag, she sat in her chair and diligently worked on her cat and heart. I took the first 2 stitches while she watched and then handed it to her and she finished both pieces all by herself!... even the stuffing! I would smile too if I had done such a fantastic job!
And this is the retreat bag that I worked on while we were upstairs. I have a plan in mind for this one and more but we shall see if the plan pans out. Time will be the determining factor. :)
I found this design at Embroidery Library. I do have to say, I really LOVE how their designs stitch out! There is no thread waste whatsoever!!
So, that was our afternoon! What did you accomplish today?
