It's that time of year - everybody's doing some form of fiber arts and my room is all a-tangle with yarn and floss. Although I have been weaving with my students for years, stitchery is relatively new to me and I am loving every minute of it. I purchased a huge box full of embroidery hoops and they are so helpful for the students, although my thumbs were numb for a few days after loading about 150 hoops with fabric. The projects are still in the works, so I'll share some "in progress" shots of the 3rd grade sampler stitching and the 5th grade tapestry weaving.
