The first ever workshop I organised as Young Embroiderers leader was making "Crazy Crows" so it seemed fitting that I should do this for my last workshop as YE leader too. This is a very photo heavy post but I couldn't possibly leave anyone out.
The crow above was made by Grace but as she had to leave at lunchtime she only got one side completed. Such beautiful stitching though. Sophia managed to work on both sides of her crow and just needs to stitch them together... and I should mention that she is only 7 years old!
The following two crows look like identical twins... but they are the work of Bluebell...
and Francesca who are the bestest of best friends.
Alev, who is only eight, came to her first meeting today and made the crow below...front..
and back... with virtually no help at all! I just love the lips!
We also have the front and back of Eve's crow (another 7 year old... Eve that is, not the crow!)
The front and back of Lottie's crow... more beautiful stitching!
Apologies now because the following four crows are the work of Abigail, Scarlett, Imogen and Jemima... but I can't remember whose is whose
Of course because our girls are so clever and self reliant it does mean that our "helpers" have very little helping to do (at least that is what they tell me) and so they managed to work on their own crows.. this one from Gill
The rather dapper Mr. Crow esq. below from Rhian
And last but not least this absolutely exquisite cockerel from Jan which does seem rather fitting as Jan will be taking over as YE leader at the next meeting. I think you are going to be in safe hands girls!
And mine... well I didn't finish one because I rather stupidly made two sides facing the same way so they couldn't be stitched together... doh! But I did make cookies for our tea break.
I've had a fabulous six years working as YE leader but it's going to be good to come along as just a helper. Looking forward to it!
