Cross stitching at school

I want to share with you some wonderful stitching that some seven and eight year olds did just before Christmas.

I was contacted by a stitcher who asked if I could design some simple cross stitch charts for her to take in to  her daughter's school where she volunteers her time helping the children. She had spoken to the teacher and suggested that the children do some simple cross stitching that could then  be made in to Christmas cards.  I was only too happy to help out....especially when she requested a penguin chart!

Here are the results....






I think we have some budding stitchers there! 

I'd like to say a big thank you to Jo for giving up her time to help these children every week and for introducing them to our wonderful hobby of cross stitching.

Until next time...happy stitching!
