My 1st Make for 2012

1 Helen January

A gift for my dear friend Helen’s birthday. I pieced it by hand, as it would have been very fiddly to piece by machine & I prefer hand piecing anyway. Helen is a vet so I incorporated quite a few animals into it, plus a few extras. Now we’ve moved to Melbourne I miss Helen’s phone calls, consisting of ‘Is the kettle on, I’m on my way?’ so I had to include the teapots, & the scissors & thimbles are there as Helen is a crafter too.

The project came from this gorgeous book that Emma gave me for Christmas. I also cut some squares to make one for myself.:-)

I have added a pic to the Flickr ‘I Have Pledged a Monthly Make for 2012’ folder. http://www.flickr.com/photos/32055815@N08/6677451441/in/pool-1830444@N20

That is so lovely. I've been looking at that book for some time now - very tempting to make a purchase! Looking forward to seeing the one you make for yourself. Cheers
