Well, today we decided to do some embroidery and work on some stitching skills! This was Mitchell's first day with a needle and thread and i think he really loved it...note how hard he was working on it. See the tongue hanging out? He was working a little too hard. First time around we sewed our project to the couch pillow in his lap. We fixed that and then tried it on a clipboard. Much better idea.
This is a piece Avery has had stashed away for awhile....but in the last day or so she seems to have remembered it and wanted to work on it again. In the time that it was away she has gained a lot more hand eye coordination for this. Thank goodness...makes a lot less frustration for both of us.
They both worked hard and for a long time. I told Avery that once it was finished we could make a fun pillow for her bed. "Really?!", she said. i think she thought it was a good idea.
Mitchell was so proud of what he had made, and wanted to give it to Daddy. He said it was a wishing web(like a dream catcher, but that is what he calls them) that he could take to the woods with him for work. so cute....
