quick and easy finish
I was working hard on my stocking SAL today, but took a break this afternoon to teach a dear friend how to stitch. I have taught many different ages of people how to stitch. I started with a little girl when she was in kindergarten. She basically pulled the needle when I put it thru the holes. Then, I taught a bunch of high school girls. They basically could have cared less about learning. (it was required of them at the time) Today, I taught a dear friend who could be my mom! Well, guess who caught on & did a great job!?!?!? Yup!!! She got the idea right away.
We both sat down with our projects. I chose the Rudolph freebie by The Stitcherhood. I decided 14 ct. aida would be best for her.
She had to leave before she could finish, but I sent everything home with her. I told her I would be finishing mine tonight. At first, I was going to 'finish' it into an ornament, then I changed my mind. I decided it would be a great pin cushion, so that is how it is finished!!!!!
Now, this evening, it is back to the stocking SAL. I need to finish parts one & two.
Have a great evening & thanks for all of the comments on my recent posts. They are so appreciated!!!
