Some blue work fun...

 I started this bunny bluework this past weekend while I was up in Central California...the thing is...my great nephew, Jake, was really fascinated with it...he's 7...and super smart! 
He wanted to help me...of course he could help...I was delighted to show him...yes it's not perfect...that's the beauty of it. I am going to make this into a table runner...and I will always think of the time I spent showing Jake how to work on this every time I use it. The wonderful thing is the encouragement that all the adults gave Jake...both men and women...I was so happy to share this time with him. These times are precious...it made me think back to when my sons were small and how my very wise Mother -in-law told me to spend all the time I could with my boys...they are only small for a while...they only need you for such a short time...Jake was not only learning how to embroider...but patience and sharing...my only regret is that I can't spend more time with him.
Until next time...hug the wee ones in your life...and enjoy the day!!!
