So for Teresa, I chose a Parisian - something to remind her of her journey to Paris when her boys when they were little.
For Helen, I chose a Venetian theme to remind her of her travels abroad with her daughter and
For Nor - she was a little trickier as I am not sure where she had fond memories of, so I took a different tangent. Nor had mentioned on several occasions that she would love to visit Ireland, where her father had come from, so I found a picture of 'old' Ireland for her..
I don't have a photo of Nor's set (I forgot to take photo's and had to steal from the other girls for a photo) but I do have a set with the same front picture but Nor's one is done with blue fabric..
I am known for making several of the one item and this time was no exception, so with a surge of mojo, I put together all these... This is my little production line..
Here are some of them finished off..
I still have quite a few to finish but I am sure they will be handy for something - maybe a swap or a birthday or I could become the queen of pincushions and needle books - one for each day of the week.
Anyhow I will put them up as I finish them - hopefully while still in January.
Last Tuesday was the first get together for The Tuesday Girl for 2018 - it was fun catching up with each other and chat about our Christmas break. Helen gave us all a magnetic calendar which I have placed near my sewing machine for quick references to. Thanks miss Helen and thank you Miss Sarah Patchwork Plus in Tasmania..
That's all for today - hopefully this blogging thing will be a bit more regular this year..(fingers crossed)..
