A Prayer for Students by St. Thomas Aquinas

Creator of all things, true source of light and wisdom, origin of all being, graciously let a ray of your light penetrate the darkness of my understanding.

Take from me the double darkness in which I have been born, an obscurity of sin and ignorance.

Give me a keen understanding, a retentive memory and the ability to grasp things correctly and fundamentally.

Grant me the talent of being exact in my explanations and the ability to express myself with thoroughness and charm.

Point out the beginning, direct the progress, and help in the completion. I ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Today we are going to create a plan for our North-East landmark squishy.

Use the planning sheet below to draw your design. Remember you need to think how you will use the three stiches that we practiced using last week: blanket stitch, running stitch and back stitch.

The file below gives you example of how you can turn some North-East landmarks in to simple drawings which can then be made in to a squishy.
