Well the man and the boy had an early start for fishing and they were back by mid-morning full of their Fishermen's Tales; it was this big!I had decided to do a bit of fishing around too, in one of the many blanket chests around the house which need to be organised and sorted through from time to time. Do you remember binca sewing? I love the fabric and colours of childhood sewing. These were grandma's;
These were mine, heaven knows how many years ago!
I especially liked the pink binca - of course!
The beautiful boy has been adding to the family collection. These were worked at 4, 5 and 6 years old. He received an award for one of them!
Did I mention that he got an award for his sewing? That's my boy!
I still love to work stitch samplers, but now I work through different stitch dictionaries creating my own reference pieces.
Pink fabric is still preferred! This time it's aida fabric which I think of as 'binca for grown-ups'!
Tomorrow I shall have the house to myself all day and my little fishing expedition has got my fingers itching to spend it in the workroom. Hope you all had a lovely weekend despite the rain. We have the beautiful boy's birthday barbecue next Saturday with his school friends and their parents- I am forecasting glorious sunshine.... or else! t.xx
