This week was my last class for a knitting enrichment after school program I was teaching. I had 8 fun girls that all came out learning how to knit!
Some girls were a bit frustrated the first week but by the second it was amazing how much they improved!
Below are some pictures showing off their skills. The first one is a students first project (left) and her second project, a scarf (right). Amazing! Right?
I even had my first lefty :)
I had such a great time. Thanks to all the girls who made teaching a blast!

Crochet anyone?

I have started getting into crochet. It's easy to take along and since I have been working on doilies, the projects are quick. Nothing like instant gratification!

Just a bit of sewing

I haven't had a lot of sewing time lately which has really had me in quite a mood. Creating is therapy to me. I was able to sneak in a quick and fun project in today! I saw the girls at one of the booths of QuiltCon have cute pincushion rings and had to recreate some for myself. I had to order the ring base online (amazon... It truly sells everything!), so once I received them I set to work.
If your taking the hand embroidery camp this summer you will get to sport one of these while you work :)
