Teaching the younger generation

Well I haven't mentioned this good news... Not long after my ex left me I found another wonderful guy. He is a single father of two wonderful kids. As I've spent more time around them they keep wanting to copy me with everything I do. So now I've been teaching them to cross stitch. The boy is 6 while the girl is 9. I'm teaching them on some designs I made a while ago designed with kids in mind.
The 6yr old was the one who wanted me to teach him first but also got sick of it well before it was finished. I wasn't surprised but I got some cute photos. 

Just don't judge the quality of the Stitching and he's given up on just Stitching in the square but he did it!

While the 9 yr old wanted me to help her get started and then do it all herself.  Hers is close to perfect which is amazing to see. I love that she's done so much herself and this is the first go she's ever had. I'm proud of her sticking with it and she wants a new design to stitch already.



They were both so excited they had to send a message to their dad before he got home. He didn't mind and was happy they weren't asking for technology and as long as I didn't try and teach him!

We'll have to see what happens next.

  2. Lovely to teach the next generation. Her stitching is great.

    My son has shown interest. He's 3. He likes to help me pull the needle through.
