Embroidery...








Last week, Sugar Plum was given the gift of an embroidery hoop from a friend.  On a quick stop at the store for milk that night, I passed the craft supply aisle and chose a few skeins of embroidery floss, cloth, and needles for her to use.  The next morning, she began to stitch and I confess that I was impressed!  I cannot embroider or sew and could not really help her much, but she figured it out.  Her idea to embroider a Nativity Scene was such a good one and though I would have loved to keep her finished product, she decided (on her own) to give it to Father John's godfather's widow while we were visiting for the funeral.  She says that she will make me my own soon...  I cannot wait!

Wow- that is good! What a fun project for a young child. I wonder if that is something my children could do on our trip back East. Speaking of which, we are planning, God willing, to be at your parish next week. I hope to see you then!

She is good indeed, and what a sweet gesture. You've done good, mama.
