Anyway, we've this week started another sewing project using a metal tapestry needle, which are blunt so take away the chance of "pricking" injuries. On a recent trip to a craft store, I saw these plastic canvas squares and thought Imogen might like to play around with them. So this is what we have been doing with some oddments of wool. Imogen decided that she wants to do each line in a different colour wool so it should be lovely and colourful. She even made up her own little rhyme/story to remind her which way to put the needle and pulling it through.

Rainbow sewingShe's been really enjoying this, picking it up and putting it down every so often to do other things. When I was getting a couple of new colours of wool for her, she even threaded the needle with the wool on her own. I'd not shown her how to do it, it's just something she learnt by watching me. She also wanted me to do one, so I have one as a work in progress too.
