Under the Weather Learning

As of Sunday, our bunch started feeling crummy. One at a time, slightly overlapping each other.  Some a bit worse than others, and it looks to stretch out a couple more days.
During such a time, we could just call it all off and not try to do anything productive. But... we haven't.
I was doing some hand embroidery over the latter part of last week when Eli begged me to let him make something. A little home-ec was perfect for a quiet, sickly bunch yesterday. J
He picked out a pattern in my book Sublime Stitching. A great little book btw.J
I ironed the pattern on some spare muslin and he went to work. I think he did exceptionally well for his first attempt. We did have to work through a few knots... but otherwise he did beautifully.
We are going to sew his creation on to a pillowcase later on and he is already ready to begin his next project... for his brother
My Cup Runneth Over...

  2. What a great idea! We've had these type of days lately, and sometimes I tend to try and push through the academics, and then stop and wonder what I'm doing! Thanks as always for the inspiration! BTW...wondering what craft you did with that lovely red and white fabric that you posted about in the beginning part of March???
