My First Piece2

Do you remember your very first project? You know the one that made you feel like you truly created something? For me, my very first piece was this small tablecloth I made in fourth or fifth grade I think. It took me a while to complete it because I tried to carefully make each and every stitch. Every afternoon at craft time, the class would spend some time working on their own individual project or piece. I remember carefully folding the edges to make the cross or herring bone stitch as my teacher called it and searching through books to find the unusual embellishment that I embroidered in the corner of the cloth. Of course that was some years ago. I actually found it last weekend in my mother’s kitchen – she had kept and both used it all these years, so as you can imagine it’s not as ‘new looking’ as its once was.
