My sunflowers ceased blooming, tomatoes are redish ripe, plums are sweetish and sugary, best figs are yet to come.


Only two weeks and my new handwork classroom will be full of joy and work.

In this year I will teach handwork in class 5, class 6, class 7 and class 8.

In class 5 we will do cross stich embroidery. We will start with pin cushions and the main work will be a handbag or any other kind of case (mobile phone case or something similar). We wil meet once a week (double lessons).

In class 6 we will revise knitting, everyone will knitt a horse. After introducing knitting with 5 needles we will knit a pair of socks. We will knit both socks simultaneously, one in the forst lesson and the other in the second. We will meet once a week and knitting will be homework from time to time.

In class 7 we will sew animals. The first one will be a simple one, whole class will make equal kind. We will take about endangered species and maybe we will adopt an animal. My goal is to sew at least two animals, my experiences show me it is not two much and more than half of the class makes average five great animals. Last year we made many mice, cats, dogs, pigs, camels, bears (polar and brown), foxes, martens, donkeys, an ape, sea lions and penguins, a turtle, a lizzard, elephants, a gifaffe and many more. I hope kids will enjoy working creatively.

and in class 8 we will make felt and slippers out of it

Last year we created 27 beautiful pairs of slippers. We made felt, every pupil drew a cut regarding his/her own foot, made an emboidery and finish the slippers. We were all very proud of their work.
