These are my “pioneer” sewing artists. They pretend they are pioneer girls when they are here sewing. Yesterday we pretended we were in a pioneer sewing group! Great imaginations! The girls are doing great with their blanket stitches. They are almost done. The artists did a great job taking the scarves home last week and working on them. I am so proud of the girls. Our next project is painting. They are going to paint some animals in acrylic. We will study some folk artists who painted animals. These paintings will be 16×20. Now back to the scarves – they could wear them today! Wow, this weather! These scarves will be in the art show. I will display them along with the other artwork. I am excited about getting different artwork in the show. Keep up the good work – young artists!
