Here is something I love:
Kate is at it again. She asked me if she could embroider something to make a pillow. Of course! She drew this frog and I traced the back side of the drawing with a transfer pencil and then ironed it onto this cotton. She worked on it for about 30 minutes a couple of days ago and then put it down. This is why it takes her six months.
Not to be left out, Jane is working on a swan from the Sublime Stitching book. She really wasn’t interested in stitching one of her own drawings. She is a wonderful little artist, but she likes lots of details and that doesn’t always come across well with embroidery floss.
Something else I love: the Creative Summer flickr group started by Molly. Wow! There are lots of great ideas over there and I plan posting as much as I can. I am especially enamored with Mama Urchin’s lily pad toss game. Such a wonderful idea.
What creative things are you doing with your kids this summer?
