Well Chloe did finally succumb to the awful gastro on Monday but was over it quickly and back at school the next day. This week's illness (and I do believe we are working our way through some list somewhere!) is another virus with a cough and conjunctivitus!! So Chloe was home again on Friday and Daphne and I joined her with the sticky eyes. We are all much better today - I wonder what this week will bring........
Anyway, I asked Chloe to be a guinea pig and test out a little project for me yesterday.
She sewed lots of patches together to form a rectangle, then drew a heart and appliqued it on by blanket stitch.
I then sewed in the lining and turned it right side out.
Chloe blanket stitched the sides and around the edges.
And sewed on a button.
For a first go at hand sewing and blanket stitch I thought she did a fantastic job!
And the reason for this project?? Well, Cathy and I are planning to teach a children's class at Amitie during the school holidays. So if you have a child of 8 years old or above who would like to learn to do a bit of sewing - stay tuned! We are just figuring out the final details and will let you know this week.
And here's a little sneak peak at another project I'm working on!!
I'll let you know more about these little friends soon........
