I just finished my third year as a mentor for Meosha at Swansboro Elementary School. I spend about an hour a week with her at school. We sometimes do school work but usually do projects or just talk.
Monday was the last day for this school year. A group of mentors and mentees had lunch together in the gym (it was planned for the garden but wet ground and impending storms moved us inside). I tried to make lunch both healthy and fun. I think I succeeded there but the food, itself, was not a huge hit. Cute though, huh?
Gifts are discouraged but everybody kind of breaks that rule. Since Meosha and I have spent time with a couple of sewing projects, I put together a sewing kit for her. I may have spent $7 or $8....mostly on the scissors. Every sewing girl needs decent embroidery scissors.
I bought the scissors, the seam ripper, the needle threader, and embroidery needles. I can't remember where I found the little stitch book...somewhere online. I made the needle book from this GingerMelon free pattern. Everything else was just here.
A few easy patterns in a notebook.
A little embroidery floss.
And a bag of felt scraps. Here's hoping for a fun summer sewing.
