Sewing around Australia !




The boys and I have begun reading A Child's Geography as part of our World Studies. As part of the project the boys cut out and sewed Australia! They have never done this stitch before so I think they did pretty well. They will add as a different colour the state we live in and mark on the state approximately where we live.




Apologies to all Tasmanian viewers (ie Louise!) but we um ran out of blueness to put your state on so will have to do an amendment to this further on in our studies.oh and you'll just love Master 8's "profound" comments concerning missing state"mum, if Tasmania's not on the main land of Australia it really is a bit odd that its included as part of the country".
Not sure where his thinking goes with the country his mother hails from being that its composed of islands...maybe I confused him by telling him from a very young age that Australia was a country and a continent.
Ah well stay tuned for more geography posts!

Yes Anna, definitely "in the blood".After all if their "aunty" hadn't taught their mum the stitch and suggested the idea....
