If you like Cross Stitch

My other sewer

I have my eldest grand daughter here with me most days of the week and although I try to interest her in stitching she would prefer to be coding her own games, or playing on-line games with her friends.  That is understandable, as she is isolated from other children her own age and she suffers from co-ordination problems.  Her fine motor skills are not good.  I know she likes cooking so I am using this to try and improve her skills, with some good results.

I only see my other grand daughter  J at the school gate when I drop M off to her mother and on school holidays but I think this one will find her own way to sewing.  She spends a lot of time creating on the machine I bought her.

She can set up and thread the machine herself and is experimenting with machine applique and making little bags at the moment.

It will be school holidays again next month so maybe we can build in a sewing day.  There will have to be a day buying fabric before that.  Both girls have all the attributes to becoming 'fabric-aholics'.

It's always good to see another generation's skills and interests.

If we dont foster the skills we will not have a thriving community in the next generation.

It is good to see a child who is not glued to a computer screen! Happy stitching!
