A couple of years ago I decided that I needed to work on my stitching...embroidery...skills.  When I was in high school...many, many years ago..I was pretty good.  My Navy issue bell-bottom jeans were covered with every stitch imaginable.  Unfortunately, the class at the Visual Arts Center that I signed up for was cancelled.  So when I found an online "Autumn Stitching Club" at Wild Olive (for only $5) I decided to sign up.  The patterns are really not my style.  Cute would be the description.  But it forced me to  practice and I now have a finished product.  I love finished products.  And I now love hexagons.

So what in the world will I do with this?  Well, my younger daughter, Joanna, is a preschool teacher in Brooklyn.  And I think it would be the perfect addition to a preschool class.  What a great conversation prompt and what a great way to introduce the seasons.

So I have also signed up for the Winter Stitching Club.  Jo, look for more stuff for your classroom!!
