Friday Homework for Lesson 39: Granitos

Time to hand in Friday Homework for Sunday Stitch School.

This week the stitch is called Granitos, I guess Granito is singular, but then my Spanish has not improved since last Sunday!


Student:

If Granitos mean small grains, 

then I can sew 

Granito grains of sand,

green cacti Granitos,

with blue Granito flowers, 

Chain stitched stems from where

purple Granito blossoms dangle,

and white Granito petals sprout, 

while yellow Granito petals,

on top of Stem stitched stems

spread out from black Granito crossed centres....

Teacher:
Since when was your homework poetry?
The task was BIOLOGY!

Student:
But all these plants, and the sand, too, IS biology - flora and geology!

Teacher:
Well, at least your stitching is not as awful as your verse!

    1. it's a difficult background to work! Almost no colour shows up well. I should have to stitch to white or black.
