Lesson 2 - XXO XXO

This lesson we learned to make Xs on large sized gingham.  We also learned to sew on buttons for our Os. 

I love the way Isabelle dresses. Her mom always sends out "old clothes" when she comes to visit at the farm because they always play outside and get very dirty or stained with mulberries or raspberries.  Today her combination was a purple Justin Bieber shirt, a black herringbone check mini skirt and some wild black leggings with turquoise roses all up and down them.  (She's 7 but I think the clothes come from an older girl, daughter of a friend of my daughter's). Isabelle is wild and lots of fun and very proud of her XXOs. 

Kayla, on the other hand, is normally dressed in pink and has been since she was old enough to say PINK. She's quiet and reserved (like grandma) and takes her work very seriously. 

And she, too, is proud of her work.

Thank you for having the love and patience to teach sewing to the younger generation. I hope you will mark the sampler with the year so that they can tell the story when they have grandchildren of their own!
