:sweet stitches:

When I was young, I watched my grandma crochet. She was so speedy, and every stitch she created amazed me. I also watched my mom sew, and sew, and sew. I don't remember a time when she wasn't sewing. It still amazes me. And now, my own son watches me with wonder and curiosity. He wanted to learn to sew. He is a tad too young for machine sewing, so hand sewing was the next best choice. So I went shopping...

Shopping list (inspired from the book The Creative Family - Soule Mama blog in blogroll):

Embroidery Hoop
Tapestry Needles (so he doesn't poke his fingers)
Embroidery Floss (lots of fun colors)

Here is my boy creating beautifully sweet stitches:

So proud of himself!

  1. SO stinking cute! I saw a little boy with a shirt on the other day that would be perfect for him...
    Lock up your daughters.
    Had loads of fun the other day with you. I already have the quilt almost done, just a few more stitches and some applique. I will post my pictures when I am done...
