Fiona first finished applique block.
Not a bad first attempt. Fiona tried several stitches on this piece.
She did have some difficulty with the blanket stitch but I think is was partly because she was using a very slippy Trebizond silk.
The back stitch she figured out herself.
The silk velvet circle was done using a 50wt silk thread (Tire) this was enjoyed as Fiona liked the way it slide through the fabric.
I was very proud of this part as she managed to do it using an orange thread as I wanted her to learn how to make a mismatched colour disappear.
My belief is that one should let a child use the same quality of material as one would expect to use yourself. That said I have made her aware of the cost of this.
