I did my best ...

I wanted to stitch something very simple,

and I really love this little sentence "I did my best".

Of course, we all do our best ... and even if the result is not always "nice or "satisfying" ,

it is not so important since we DID our best !!!lol

The only stupid thing with words is ...

the spelling of them

Laura Ingalls 


I love this quote by Laura Ingalls because I love reading and writing

and I am also my DH's proof reader so this sentence is very special to me ...

I think that I will work thoroughly on this theme ...

spelling bee, slate work ... I don't know for the moment ...


This new pattern is available in my ETSY SHOP



Thanks for visiting my friends !!!

Mary liked to sit and read ...

Once again I got inspiration from Laura Ingalls's books ...

I read this sentence in "On the banks of Plum Creek"

and I got the idea of creating

a big pouch to store the slate that the 2 young sisters were sharing

as well as a little pouch to store  flat pillows representing animals and one syllable words such

as those you can read in the Mac Guffey's First eclectic Reader.

I also add a copybook cover with a cross stitched tag .. even if copybooks were not common at that time ...


Sold, thank you !

Copybook Cover + cross stitched tag and Big Pouch
