Sewing Project

This is Victoria's sewing project. 
She came to me with the fabric and said that she wanted to stitch a christmas tree to hang on her door.
I drew out the pattern on a piece of paper and showed her once how to work the cross stitch.  She picked it up quickly and was done lickety split.
I did have to fix a couple knots on the back.
She learned that the back is just as important as the front.
I always hated that lesson.
She was pretty proud of herself and couldn't wait to show her Dad. 
I am proud of her too.  She really stuck with it and finished the whole idea.
I also loved that she found everything she needed in a few plastic boxes.

WOW! I was there, it's true she brought everything to mom, mom marked out the pattern on paper. That is wonderful Victoria, I am very impressed and you didn't even feel that hot that day.
