It's The Simple Things In Life That Keep Me Happy!

Recently it has been my goal to try and stitch a little bit of something every day even if it's just a couple of threads on a tapestry or cross stitch project or another square added to my patchwork cushion.  Yesterday, as the picture below shows you, a completely unexpected project was given to me by my 3 year old daughter.

"Mummy", she said. "I've drawn this donkey; can you stitch it for me?".
"Certainly" I said.... and away I sped to gather up needle, thread and material.
Slightly Wonky Donkey - Stitched With Love!
A few stitches later and one slightly wonky donkey was completed!  I handed it back to my daughter and she duly took it away and using her little scissors, cut round the material.  Once this task had been completed she came back and handed it to me and said "this is for you, so that you will always remember me when I'm not here and at nursery!!".  

Although I hadn't planned on sewing this yesterday and I know it's not the neatest of stitching, I will keep this pride of place in the sewing room as a wonky reminder of my little girl.

Happy Stitching
