Father Daniel and Matushka Dunia came over for dinner on Thursday night. We have been meaning to get-together for a meal for quite awhile, but our schedules havent matched up. After we ate, Matushka spent a little time with our daughter teaching her a few basic embroidery stitches. Our little girl has become quite the needlewoman of late (she knits, cross-stitches, and can use a sewing machine) and embroidery has been on her list of things to try for quite some time. She enjoyed her lesson very much and has spent the past few days whipping through the little sampler that Matushka drew for her. Her goal was to finish by Sunday, and she was done this morning! She'll be able to show her teacher what she practiced tonight at Vespers!
