Bursting!

I can't believe how much Evelyn has really taken to sewing! She has really done so nicely and is a much better sew-er than I was at her age. She drew 2 pictures and wanted to embroider them, so I cut out two pieces of muslin for her, helped her trace her pictures, showed her a few stitches and she just took off! I'm just bursting with pride!

She made the girl and cat one first, then the next day, she did the boy and dog one. Both were finished in a couple of hours. I told her we'd get frames and hang them up and she couldn't wait for me to frame them, reminding me several times. They'll get hung up in her room. I love them!

Whoa!! Im right proud of you girl! Be sure to put down age and date on back so she'd always remember exactly when she was into it.

She is younger than I was when I got into stitching. I have two, cat and dog when I was about 7 when I did them. Mine was a kit. While Evelyn did all on her own! wow wow...
