oh that's just stitch and flip mummy!



I'm sure in every parent's life there are lots of times when you find your children are better than you at something. I just didn't expect it to be sewing - well not yet anyway.......



Miss K went on a young quilters workshop on Sunday and made this obscenely wonderful pocket wall hanging, complete with photographs on fabric, and all lined, wadded and quilted...

mummy: so how did you make the bottom of the pockets so neat?
Miss K: oh that's just stitch and flip mummy....



well if she's that cheeky again I shall set this fire breathing embroidered dragon on her!

  11. This made me laugh, fire breathing dragon and all. What a great project she's done though, wonderful work especially with the photographs. Hopefully, there will be no more cheek and so you won't have to pull out the dragon!

  12. A great project, must make you proud to see a little chip of the block. It's great when they grasp something, but oh how little they think we know

  13. I am so impressed! How fabulous, and yet another skilled sewer, putting my attempts to shame. Maybe I should have gone with her!x

  14. Ha ha ha! Love it when children are so nonchalant about things and you're not. Miss K has done a wonderful job.

  15. Miss K is obviously following in her mummy's clever footsteps with this project. Sounds like this is the beginning of a very successful hobby - or maybe you could go into business together!

  16. I just love little crafty children. They are so imaginative and just love whatever they make. We can learn alot from them and their crafty style, can't we?

  24. That's a really lovely piece of work! And I second the request for a 'stitch and flip' tutorial - I have no idea what that means, but it sounds good!
