S is making personalized lavender pillows. He chooses the colors of the felt and embroidery floss himself. Then he copies the letters I have written (he's not really writing yet). Notice how he's shifting the pencil from the right hand to the left. He's both handed. I wish I was too ...
Then he's stitching away, very concentrated. Simple up and down, following the lines, back and forth - or is it forth and back. He needs help jumping from one letter to the next.
Simple up and down stitches for sewing the two sides together - if the stitches are short, there's no need to sew backwards.
Filling with dried lavender flowers. We collected some wild rose buds in the summer, and will make some with those too.
