My Clever Girl

A couple of weeks ago Jenni came over and was looking through the current "Homespun" magazine. She put in a request for one of the quilts and decided she would make the embroidered bag for herself using black fabric and bright colours rather than the pretty colours in the original.

Jenni is on school holidays at the moment (she is a primary school teacher), came over to visit last night and cut out a piece of fabric for the embroidered section of the bag. When I arrived home from work tonight Jenni was here to show me her finished embroidery.


I was so surprised and happy to see this. The photo at the top of my blog is Jenni about age 7 doing a cross stitch (which is still not finished). I love that photo.
