While 2012 Olympic fever has filled the house, my 10 year old and I have caught the embroidery bug! I bought a lovely book called Doodle Stitching by Aimee Ray.
I set my daughter the task of creating a sample of all the stitches, shown in the front of the book.
|Progress was good...some frustration too!|
Once she completed the apprenticeship, she was away, tracing the motifs and marking them on the white fabric.
Here's what she did..
|The green duckling was a creation from Lace Club,|
run by a teacher my daughter's school.
I also got involved in the bug and made an elephant - soon to be properly framed.
Luckily for us, my mum was visiting and she organised the stray and messy threads! Thanks mum x
Now our neighbour has returned from holiday she is now creating a sample of stitches, the embroidery bug is infectious!
