Getting Ready For Super Saturday Craft Day with My Niece

I have been spending the day working on the class Michelle asked me to teach to her young friends this Saturday.  I am going to be teaching embroidery as some of you know.  Well, I was talking to one of the young gals last week and she said she would love to learn how to do embroidery but what else can you make besides tea towels!!!  Cracked me up.  so they are going to have their young little eyes opened!!

I ordered a darling pattern from Marg Low down in Australia hoping it would get here in time and it did:

I love all of Marg's designs but this is one I wanted for myself so I thought it would be perfect to show what can be done.

I also spent the evening making this cute little thing:


And hope to make a little pillow or hanging for the knob on my TV armoire before Saturday!!  It's very small - 4" x 6" but with a border it will be perfect!!  I used Valdani floss which is hand over dyed from Shell over at The Raspberry Rabbits and it turned out so fun with the variegated thread!!

Now just to figure out how I am going to run the class and get all these young women excited about hand work!!
