13 yo: Mum
Me: yes gorgeous
13 yo: I have to do textiles. You know like you do, sewing, knitting etc - it is going to be sooo boring.
Me: (biting my tongue) oh okay. You might be surprised?
13 yo: ha ha I DON'T think so Mum!
a week later...
13yo: Look what I did in textiles - we did a back stitch and sewed on a button till it was secure. We just had to do two boxes.
Me: (having a look at it and gasping) OH my gosh that is SO GOOD!
Me: your stitch lengths are perfect! I find that really hard to do (no I really REALLY do).
13yo: (pft) that is really easy mum. It was really good and this week we are doing applique on a bag and stitching it down next week.
One - He has learned some crafty technical words and two - he said 'it was really good'.
I could not be prouder that he is putting my stitching to shame.
Oh and I want to meet this teacher. She must rock. Maybe she can convert my 13 year old? How cool would that be?
Please sponsor me! I am really need to raise my funds! Every little bit counts.
