Teaching Tuesday :)

'Tonight I have been sharing my addiction with someone close to me (before you all get worried, its totally craft related and harms no-one and nothing-with the exception of my bank balance!)

My friend Sam asked me to teach him to cross stitch a few weeks ago and nw that we've had some free time I've been able too!

After Sam picked out a chart he liked the look of (something small, a little backstitch & a few colour changes) I pulled the equipment he'd need, explained the difference between Anchor & DMC, went over the basics (how to make a cross, work stitches in a line or singularly, start off, finish a thread etc) and then pretty much left him to it while I got on with my own project.
While Sam was stitching I managed to finish off 'Eat Locally', I know I said I was going to finish it yesterday but I kinda fell asleep instead! Here is 'Eat Locally' & 'Save Water' finished, next up is 'Keep Our Air Clean'.
I took Sam home around 9PM, after 3 hours of stitchy fun. I think he enjoyed himself! (Well I hope he did!)
And a close up of Sam's first Cross Stitch, he's taken it home to finish :)
Till Next Time, Happy Stitching!!
