Early start..

My good intentions to finishing the first horses head were far too ambitious as I didn't stitch anything at the weekend.

I promised an update on my nieces (she is 5) sewing.  I sent her off with needle and binca and some instructions on basic running stitch. She came back to show me that she was stitching a teddy bear and here was his head - I was impressed, especially when on Saturday morning (she came for a sleepover) she stitched whilst watching Scooby Doo!

Here is the finished bear and my niece.  She had no help with this and I don't think its too bad for her first attempt.

Now, I must get back on the horse (as the saying goes) and finish some more tonight - Do! I cant, I am off to the cinema (yet, again!) to see 50/50.  Anyone know if its good?

Bye for now :)


  1. That's pretty good for a five-year old. I have stitched with my six-year old niece-she has a very short attention span, but we are making progress.

  2. Awww, your niece is adorable and what a great job on the bear. :D


I really appreciate you taking the time to comment. Spill the beans...
