– While in Montana, my niece was there with her daughter, Mercedez who loves to do crafts and learn new projects. Her great-grandmother, our mom, started showing her different cross stitch projects that mom and I had done. Mercedez really liked them, so mom decided to teach her how to cross stitch.
She taught her not only how to cross stitch, but some embroidery stitches, French knot, chain stitch, detached chain stitch (aka: lazy daisy stitch), and button holes stitch.
I taught her how to read a cross stitch pattern. The pattern she had was of a snowman that was printed in black and white. Mom showed her how to color the stitches on the pattern to make them easier to follow. Her mom said she refused to go to bed until she finished the snowman’s scarf. I think she is hooked. It is so great to teach those that love to learn. 🙂
