5th grade - cross stich

First handwork lesson this year: class 5 - cross stich.

We became familiar with the technique, stramin, made plans for pin cushions, chose colours and we started to trim small pieces of stramin.

Next week we will repeat the technique with our whole bodies, then without a DMC floss and only then with the DMC floss, which I still expect.

The class was vibrant and chatty, but I expect beautifull pin cushions and later bags and pencil cases.
