Didn't they do well

Just as I thought, the Young Embroiderers had no problem with canvas work. It was a short meeting today as we only had the room for this morning, plus it was a small group but they did really well in the time. Not everyone finished but as you can see the work in progress looks lovely.


The green one above was Danijela's and Aleksija was working on the blue and purple one below. We found some plastic canvas in our cupboard which made them a little easier to work - certainly a lot easier to join together.

Molly was also working in blues and purples with an extra red tassel thrown in for good measure!

Quentin had almost finished his... another ten minutes and he would have been done!


And there were two finished bookmarks, this beautiful pastel one by Sophie.

And this lovely one by Nikki which reminds me of the colours of Spring flowers.

  2. They certainly did!! Do well! What lovely work in such a short time. They should all be very pleased with themselves and with their talented teacher. (Hope you're treating yourself with a glass of something red).

  3. They are all fantastic! I think I've got some plastic canvas somewhere but I've never been sure what to get the children to make with it - now I've got a very good idea!

  4. How rewarding this must have been. The session may have been short but the results are sweet. Well done you.

  5. Canvaswork was the technique which led me into embroidery, and I am still drawn to it, although I do all sorts now, and mixed media. Your young pupils have done very well indeed - I love their bookmarks. You must be proud of them all.

  6. They all look really good - out of interest, what ages of children did you have working on this?

  11. Aren't they superb? What sort of ages were they? People only learn when they have an inspirational tutor you know.
