I had a bit of a clean up in my craft room yesterday...isn't it amazing how fast things get in a mess? One thing led to another, and I found myself looking through storage boxes right at the very back...lots of treasures (and UFO's...gulp) hiding back there. Amongst the half finished cross stitch kits and tapestry wools and teddy bear kits, I found this little treasure which I thought you might like to see...
This is my very first attempt at stitching!
I was in Year 2 at school, and a lovely lady fondly called "Morgy" came in to teach our class to stitch. She was actually one of my good friend's nanny/housekeeper, and such a patient woman :)
Here is the full piece in all it's glory :) Love how I've started and finished with a big knot, right on the front of my fabric...yikes!
So this is where my love of embroidery began...in a classroom in Year 2. Do you still have your first piece of stitching? I'd love to see a pic ;)
