When I was a little girl the first
two sewing skills that my Mama taught me were
sewing on buttons and embroidery.
I loved embroidery
and I made a few sets of pillow cases
and a table runner or two,
and then put it away and forgot about it.
Now it seems that hand embroidery
is making a come back and I just
had to see if I remembered any of
the skills that Mama put in me as a child.
So I cut a square of drop cloth
from my stash and drove to Walmart for
hoops and floss.
Then the fun began.
First I did this sampler.
Then I went back in and embellished even more.
I'm not sure what I'll do with these.
Thank you Mama for spending time
with me and teaching me this skill.
I will hold you in my heart
each time I sit with hoop and floss :)
So I'm encouraging you to sit with a child,
and teach them a creative skill.
Stitching, cooking, drawing, gardening . . .
Spending quality time is a way of
banking that time forever
in someone's heart.
Have A Happy Week
