Start 'Em Young!!
A little background first! I babysit for a teacher, who has 3 children. The oldest is in all day kindergarden this year, so I don't get her very often anymore. Yesterday, our schools had a 2 hour early release, for teacher work day. So....that meant the oldest had to come here for the afternoon, while mom was still at the school. The younger 2 were napping when she got here. I was stitching & she was watching me very intently.
Here is the story!
I thought....Shari, see if she is interested! Take the time...take the opportunity!! I asked her if she wanted to try stitching & she smiled big & said yes. So, off I went to find supplies for her. I told her a few of my beginning secrets & then let her go. I decided to just let her work, not correct her for not making X's. At this point, let her get the feel for what the fabric feels like, how it feels to put the needle up & down etc...
I snapped a couple pictures of her working & mom said it was ok to post them. Isn't she adorable???! So intent in her work!!!
I also included a picture of what I was working on for you to see.
Have a beautiful day!
