I am trying to get ahead with my samples for classes I will teach in 2018, with the Children's Projects top of my list. I completed the first sample and the older children would handle this with no problem but I'm not sure about the little ones. I am going to look at how I can do this kind of theme in cross stitch, which might be easier. (This will be made into a pocket to go onto a small pin cushion where you can keep a pair of scissors and maybe some other tools.)
Because 2018 will be the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Embroiderers' Guild in Queensland I want all the projects to link into this in some way.
The next project will be a small purse and here I have drawn a tropical theme of pineapples, palm leaves and another tropical plant leaf. I want to introduce the students to the use of other threads to achieve texture. So far so good but I will have to stitch fast as I used a fading pen.
