One of the kids likes making pictures with bits out of the scrap fabric bin. I posted some of them in the destash thread and she went over the moon when ErinAquaheart saw them and asked if she'd like to swap. Her parcel's been received so I can post what she sent.

She makes up the pictures and I zigzag stitch them onto the background fabric.
She approved the banner fabric and design and did the beaded fringe detail herself with a bit of help from me. I think she's amazing.

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO

Love sweet pea's designs. She has a great eye for color and composition. Hard to remember how young she is because her skills far surpass what I would expect from someone her age.

Aw, thanks Smiley. We looked at a lot of images online for inspiration but she did all the design work herself with just a bit of advice from me. She's so creative.

I love the pattern on pattern! Very well done.

I hope she remembers her first commission for a long time.
