For the second crafty field trip, we spent the day in the duyans of the Gawad Kalinga Enchanted Farm, stitching the day away. A Saturday couldn't be steadier! ;)
While waiting for breakfast, we did an introduction circle, and a quick cross-stitch stamping activity.
DMC was there to provide thread and materials for the participants. I prepared travel-sized stitch guides as well. Embroidery is good company when you're waiting in line for something. :P
In the morning, I taught huck/Swedish style embroidery, one of my favorite crafts from high school. Photo Credit: DMC
Mansy and Isa made friendship bracelets (the abundance of thread was too tempting). Isa taught us how to do the box braid, using fingers to weave. The little girls in the Gk community at the farm took home some bracelets, too!Photo Credit: DMC
