We found Kristin's book at the library. Looking through it at home, Child Two found several projects she'd like to make, I found several I'd like to do (even though I'm not officially a kid), and we found more that we'd like to do together, so we ordered our own copy. If you or a kid you know are interested in embroidery, this book is full of projects that are appealing, quick, and completely achievable for beginners.
It wasn't until after Kristin contacted me and I looked at her website that I realized I own two of her other books, Colorful Stichery and Kids Knitting. Isn't the Internet wonderful? I wrote a little piece just because I was proud of my daughter and I ended up hearing from someone so talented and inspiring!
I'm very happy to be able to share my interest in crafts with my kids. When I was learning to embroider at Child Two's age, all I had to choose from were stamped dishtowels and bibs bought at the variety store and Sunset kits. Now, thanks to writers like Kristin, kids can easily find projects that are achievable, fun, and designed for them.
Kristin, I'm glad that writing these books fits into your life as a mom, because it's made my life as a mom that much more enjoyable.
