Earlier this Fall my girl was given a very standard 6th grade Biology assignment:
Make a model of a cell and label all it's parts.
All on her own she realized she could embroider a cotton napkin and make the assignment FUN!
I need you to know I had nothing to do with this project besides having a studio FULL of supplies she could easily use. Well, that's not totally true, I did teach her how to embroider....
I adore the detailing she did on this, using the running stitch to outline items, and some smaller stitches and scribbles to delineate cell parts... and just look below at the key. This Mama is PROUD!
Miss B was about 9 when she learned how to embroider... do you think your kid(s) might enjoy this type of handwork? If so, Maya has a great post about embroidering with children that you should check out!
It's the last day of NaBloPoMo, and I made it, WOOT! No worries, I still plan on blogging, though I think I'll take a break for a few days, ok?
