Update on Alexander

Alexander is going to town on his sunflower. This weekend he picked out the wools he wanted for his petals. Since he is only six and I'm not comfortable having him use the big sharp scissors, I trimmed the petals for him the size he wanted and here he is (accompanied by Maggie dog) hooking in some of the petals. I showed him how to grab the little end of the petal and pull it up through the linen. He is talking about hooking a blue sky. I had him look at several pictures of sunflowers to decide how he wanted his center to look. He decided he wanted the very center trimmed down, while the outside left proddy. So again I trimmed the center for him because I don't want him using the fabric scissors until he is older and has more hand coordination.
