As of Sunday, our bunch started feeling crummy. One at a time, slightly overlapping each other. Some a bit worse than others, and it looks to stretch out a couple more days.
During such a time, we could just call it all off and not try to do anything productive. But… we haven’t.
I was doing some hand embroidery over the latter part of last week when Eli begged me to let him make something. A little home-ec was perfect for a quiet, sickly bunch yesterday. J
He picked out a pattern in my book Sublime Stitching. A great little book btw.J
I ironed the pattern on some spare muslin and he went to work. I think he did exceptionally well for his first attempt. We did have to work through a few knots… but otherwise he did beautifully.
We are going to sew his creation on to a pillowcase later on and he is already ready to begin his next project… for his brother! ♥
My Cup Runneth Over…
