She has been waiting for about 18 months to go to one of these classes because she had to be 7 years old before she could attend.With great excitement, and a little fear as well she arrived all ready to begin.
As you can see in this photo she was all concentration and was unaware that I had taken her photo.What she was making was a mobile to hang in the window consisting of 3 flowers made in felt with blanket stitch around the edges and each flower was joined by a string of bead danglies.
In this photo is one of the flowers with her first attempt at blanket stitch.There is a sequin sewn in the centre which she managed to do by herself. She got tired of doing blanket stitch --so the next 2 flowers were done in an over-edge stitch which was less strenuous for her(and her teacher too)
Each flower has a string of bead dangles between them and there is also a dangle on the bottom and the one at the top.She only needed help when she had to thread the needle back down through the beads on the top and up through the bottom ones.
Here is the mobile hanging in the window.
And here is the proud student showing off the finished item which she had to finish at home because she was loosing concentration after 3 hours of stitching. (Notice my dry back garden through the window because we have a severe water shortage here at present)
