Recently I had lunch with some very creative women and we exchanged handmade gifts. I wanted to do something for them that was unique, I had not seen and had not made before. After giving it some thought, I decided to come up with these stylized leaves. And I personalized them for the recipients. Starting at the bottom, Rosiland always puts a flower in her quilts, so I gave her a flower. Next, counter clockwise the orange and gold was for Jereena who is from India. Then Barb hand dyes a lot of fabric so hers was made with a batik with the look of one of Barb's hand dyed fabrics. Then there is Billie, and she is new to our group. And lastly (but not least) is Carole, a fabulous quilter and all who know her know she has a very distictive look using her signature colors so the one I made for her was in celebration of that.
Thank you to all my Creative Friends. I look forward to a new year of creating together. Sharing laughter, sharing techniques, encouragement and love with my sisters of the cloth!
