our michaelmas crowns; a golden hue

young children love the art ad learned skill of sewing, the practice and the quiet time.
fall is a perfect time for this more introspective craft!
at our playschool this week we celebrated michaelmas.
the children have been working since school began on a wee project of sewing. many of them are very busy with their hands and looked forward to these quiet times of " thread the needle to and fro here we go"...
i loved seeing how each child's sewing was so different, kind of like their own handmade symbol.
last night i sewed up their wool into golden crowns for michaelmas and we had a little ceremony of knighting each child before we ate our feast of dragon bread, figs, cheese and apples with honey!
