Grace and Caitlin spent the afternoon here while Mitchell was playing hockey in Fredericton Junction. For weeks they have been wanting to learn to hand stitch. So, today was day. They are learning the stem stitch. I prepared a practice piece for them to start on. I also made them a little stitching bag to carry all their stitching things in. Hoop, needle, floss and pretty little embroidery scissors. Three hours of stitching and that was enough for day 1. Caitlin is spending the night, so she will likely stitch a bit more. Stay tuned!
