I always get a good laugh when I do projects of the "domestic" variety and the boys groan. Almost always, they end up being some the best weavers or sewers. I overheard one of the boys say "this is woman's work" and we all had a good laugh and pointed out how great he was at it. My fifth grade students are learning about the history and art of embroidery. We spent a day practicing on burlap with yarn. They immediately got the hang of it and will begin embroidering their final piece next week. I will share those when we get them underway!
