One of my friends, Sophie, is a teacher. Awhile ago she asked if I'd like to teach a small group of students (year 6 - year 8) how to sew. Sure, sure, fine. All good. Ages away. Heaps of time, heaps.
Now, it's tomorrow.
I am busily preparing.
I've made the students all little pins & needles kits.
Samples. My mum came over earlier and I showed her this embroidery sample and she laughed. So now I'm nervous the kids will laugh too and I will be the unpopular crazy sewing lady. Edit: my mum just called me and said I shouldn't tell everyone she laughed. She didn't laugh in a mean way, just in a way that suggested my sample could be a bit more impressive, which I guess was true!
My mum did give me this cute Beatrix Potter book so I felt better. It's like an adults kids book, it's all copies of letters Beatrix Potter wrote to people, and it has popups and foldouts... Will investigate after my first day as the crazy sewing lady. Wish me luck!
