Dd's Embroidery Wip's and Past Projects

Dd's current wip is this darling dachshund from
 Do you see her list? Yes people... she made a list
with the colors she will like to use to stitch the
different areas in her pattern or for details she
will add to the pattern (she is in Kindergarten!!!).
She also has an ongoing wip... a simple stitch sampler.
The picture below shows where she is at right now.
I wrote the name of the stitches with a pen and she likes
me to grade her when she is done with each line.
She did practice a bit of chain stitching but it was in a scrap
piece of fabric on a different hoop.

For her age and for been the very 1st time trying out this stitch 
I think she did pretty good. 
Below are some of her past projects:
a penguin (from a DMC My Style My Stitch Transfer pack),
 a girl's embroidery (freebie from Lazy May).
I introduced dd to very simple embroidery since she was one year old.
I do have a couple of pictures of her very 1st try at embroidery
but I'm not able to edit them well enough to get her out of 
the picture and leaving a clear view of her embroidery so I won't
be sharing those... too many creeps out there... ya' know!!!
I must tell you that Dd likes embroidery but is not her favorite
thing to do...( Her thing is drawing!!!
She loves to draw!!! She got that from her daddy :-).
Do you share your hobby/ies with your progeny and/or friends?

(This is a scheduled blog post. I'm away from my blog.)


  1. Hi Monika - Wow! Your dd's stitching looks just wonderful. She is really learning her stitches and doing such a beautiful job. I especially love the stitch sampler.

  2. wow, dd is so talented with embroidery even though it's not her favorite thing to do ;) LOVE that she has a plan to her stitchery, picking colors out ahead of time and such, I totally do that! what has dd done with the items she has stitched up? are they all framed in hoop?
