In other cross stitch news I am very excited to be teaching the twelve 9 year olds in my daughter's Brownie Troop how to cross stitch in April. I will be leading them in a sewing Try-it and have decided that a bookmark will be a good place for them to start. If anyone knows of any free bookmark charts or motifs that 9 year olds girls would enjoy stitching please let me know. I want to keep it pretty simple since, with the exception of my daugher, none of them have stitched before. Thanks!
I am also (finally!) taking my first sewing (machine) class this Friday! I am SO excited as I have been wanting to do this for sew (ha, ha) long! My husband and kids gave me the lessons for Christmas and I signed up for the 1st one for this week. After this very introductory class I can then take classes for clothing, drapery or quilting!! I'm thinking clothing first but we'll see :-)
Thank you for visiting and for inspiring my stitching and soon-to-be sewing in MANY ways!!
