I have a profound interest in embroidery, as I have female ancestors on both sides who embroidered their way through great trials.
My younger daughter discovered recently that she likes embroidering. She embroidered two presents for her grateful sister and now she is excited to embroider all the things.
It would take a while to work up to any of these projects (and she would need to have a lot of time to do them!):
