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!!
