We just started our Spring Tapestry - the last one of the year! This time, we drew a picture on the burlap with sharpies. I talked to the kids about "drawing with your needle" to create a picture. They are loving embroidery and will choose to sew any free chance they get. You can really see how their sewing skills have progressed this year.
In progress: detail of a flower and bumblebee and sweet bunny.
ed - Since you might want to know, here is where I got our Tapestree Table.
