Sew Petite: Sewing in circles tutorial to try with the kids

The latest issue of Petite Purls is up and ready to inspire you. My daughters and I collaborated on the Sew Petite feature, a beginning stitching project for you to try with the budding crafters in your life. Ameila, 4, stitched the flower in the hoop above.

Abby, 6, decided to go her own way and stitched stacks of circles embellished with buttons.

And I made this one.

All three pieces have found their way to the wall in the kitchen. It was fun to sit around the table and work on our projects together. Thanks heavens for family craft time. It’s the best!

Okay, head on over to Petite Purls and check out all the great patterns and projects. In honor of the online publication’s first birthday, Carey Huffman designed super cute knitted and crocheted party hats. Oh, to have the time to whip of a collection of those for the next family party.

Happy stitching, everyone!

    Actually, there will be layoffs not laiutwss. As long as the teachers believe that they can’t be touched, they have no reason to step up and face reality. Most districts have hacked away at everything but staff and staff compensation because of the ridiculous contracts they’ve agreed to (generally under duress). Now that the state can’t keep adding money to the comp pot, districts have been forced to acknowledge the reality that they cannot afford to pay the increases in compensation (salaries + annual health care increase) for their entire staff. A wage freeze would have fixed most of the gap, but the teachers would rather throw a few of their own over the side rather than admit that they overreached in their last negotiation. Time to drive the point home by bringing the property tax levy increase down to a reasonable level one to two percent, and let the BOE and REA work out where/how they cuts can be implemented.

  4. My curiosity lies with how much the local hawkers, who presumably are trying to support their family, detract or add to the authentic experience of both the natural wonder and the context within which it lies.

  6. This commercial is just stating the obvious. If she was a gamer, her 3DS would be in the closet collecting dust while she plays her IMPORTED copy of Persona 4: The Golden on her Vita.
