Hand sewing with Yr 2.........

 Hand sewing this time with Yr 2 class. They are making sections of the middle part of the mural. It will be a big diamond. It was their own idea to include this in the mural as I wanted them to have an input into the design.
 First they made the backgrounds
 Then seeding and cross stitch
 Gorgeous all together
 Next the 'shadow ' part of the diamond ........purples ......
Very delicate little stitching .........very talented and enthusiastic children ..........
