Last Year's Journal Quilts

I'm still finishing up my journal quilts from last year. I got behind with posting, and making these when we moved house. Now I'm catching up and only have October and November to finish.

August - "Blooms" - I had a lot fun with this, and it was good to have some handwork to do because I had to pack up my sewing stuff to get the house tidy for sale:

Lastly for now, December - "family" - a photo of my Mum holding my eldest brother:

  2. Oh wow !!!

    Great talents in your little group.
