I am working on the October Holidays Children's Class. Why now? Well I am obsessed with birds at the moment and I had an idea to stitch a pocket to attach to a tote bag. Only problem is the cross stitch version I have come up with would be great for the older students but what to do for the younger ones?
I have a box where I put away donated fabrics and threads at the Guild but when I went in I found that all the wool threads I had put away had been donated to the sale table in my absence. (I doesn't do to be sick.) But, I did find some fabric that looks a bit like aida and is 9 holes to the inch. So, I went out and bought some wool and tried the design on that. It isn't finished yet but it shows great promise. The cross stitch didn't work but tent stitch looks alright.
There is a problem. It shows so much promise I think the older kids might light to stitch this one as well. ( I have taken back a heap of woollen threads from the sale table.) I will stitch out the original design on 14 count aida as well, maybe some of the older students will like that.
