I’m sharing my creative space with Mr. 3 again this week. We’d planned to go to see his first movie at the cinema today but unfortunately his little sister is sick and miserable and at home with us. He took the news that we’d have to cancel our plans quite gallantly, disappointed sure, but all in all ready to move on with the day.
Mr. 3 has been at me for a while now to teach him how to crochet. Frankly I don’t think I am up to the task, so instead today I showed him how to make stitches with a needle and thread. He was very good at listening and very careful when he held the needle. Indeed he was quite proud of himself for being so careful.
We held the needle together for the first stitch and then he did the second one on his own. I don’t think the photo above really does justice to all the hard work that was put into that second stitch. Keep in mind the boy is yet to colour within the line – getting that stitch on the blue line took a lot of concentration.
After fifteen minutes to create our two stitches we decided on a break. We’ll do some more stitching later in the day perhaps.
For more creative endeavours and hard work head on over to Kirsty’s place.
