Some of you know that my 8yr DD has a little blog for her first tentative steps into the world of stitching. I am so pleased as you would imagine that she is taking an interest in this hobby. I tend to leave her to herself as I do not want to force this on her...fearing that she will hate it. Her efforts are therefore few and far between but when she decides to do something it is always lovely :)) Her Gran (my Mum) can somehow manage to get DD to sew.....no, correction DD asks Gran if she can sew?? Seen as my Mum is a wonderful needlewoman she is only too pleased to oblige. The last weekends request from DD was for books to do designing and the sewing machine please!! Oh boy...she loves the sewing machine and now tells her Gran to go away as she can do it...lol!!
What you can see above is the result of DD's own designing...parts are entirely her own, a little bit from a book and definately her own colours and ideas. I think she is brilliant :) :) :) At the moment she has had 'enough' of evenweave linen and likes this Binca and the threads her Gran has left over from teaching needlework in a school, as she can see quick results...a girl after her mothers heart, don't you think ;-)) ...lol
Look and see that personalisation A to H...how cool is that from some-one who is 8 :)
Next, look down and take in this fab bow...goodness me...mine are not even that nice and I was proudly told that "Gran did not do it for me".
This next picture shows the fabric that was chosen for the back, DD knows that I hold our French stitching friends in such high regard for their talents, soooooo, look at what she chose!! This took her 4 and a half hours to do and apart from Gran turning it the other way out after it being machine sewed it was all her own work. Pretty cool huh!! DD made a few more things last weekend and when she gets the time (from her busy social life) she will update her blog and apparently she is going to do a tutorial of how to make a pillow on her blog for you all. Be sure to check in when she does so that you know you are doing them right ;-)))
Those that follow DD's stitching will be pleased to know that Mary Kirby is finished apart from about 4 stitches but I don't seem able to get her to do them...sigh ;-) Next up...Carol and Karen, she is making you a gift but don't hold your breath it might take 2 years to get to you the rate we are going, at least the thought is there ;-)) I have to pass a message on to you Carol..." I really like that lady with the cats" Her other favourites are Joanie with her horses and KiwiJo with her dogs :-)) Oh and Vero DD thinks you have the nicest blog of all :)) but she want hers to look like Becky's :-))
Thanks for calling by, I do appreciate your visits :-))
Have a great Sunday!!
