Paying attention to Handicraft and LifeSkills makes a difference

As we listen to our Literature Read Alouds, I often have the girls working on a Handicraft or Life Skills project.  I recently taught them to cross stitch and embroider on a dish towel.  JitterBug really likes it and wanted to make some things for her hope chest to be used when she is out on her own.  Here she is with two pillowcases she just finished:

She is loving this new skill  – it has given her additional confidence in several areas.  When she took it to Young Women, she had several of the older girls want to learn how to do it too.

    I am so impressed, Jitterbug! The pillowcases are very pretty – good job! Your grandma and several of your aunts, and at least one cousin, as well as your mom, all like to embroider —- welcome to the club! = )

    Jitterbug, those are so pretty! I love to embroider. I did 16 table toppers for Josh’s wedding! Do you know that if you taught those older girls how to embroider, you can pass off a Personal Progress? How awesome would that be!!! Keep adding to your hopechest. I treasure every little thing that I put in mine. Some of worn out and I was very sad. 🙂
