I'm making a small quilt for each of the kids to put in their "treasure box" for when they are older.
Each quilt will have embroidery of drawings, numbers and spelling from their first year at school when they were 5 years old.
Here's how I'm doing it:
Firstly find those school books and drawings that you simply can not throw out, spend lots of time going through them and thinking about how far they have come, sigh!!!! Pick out your artwork.
Stitch around the work, I'm using three strands of DMC, colour 844. I like this colour as it's a dark grey/blue and looks nice of the cotton/linen I'm using.
Have fun :)
