If you are following along on Instagram, you are aware that the Canuck Birthday Club is still going strong. I’ve got a few gifts to catch up with on the blog though!
My good friend Jaclyn’s birthday was in September. Would you believe that she didn’t have a single mini hanging in her sewing room?! No me neither. So I decided to make her one for her birthday.
I didn’t actually take my own photo of the finished product before gifting it to her, so please enjoy the screen shot! Also, that’s her Instagram name and she makes some pretty awesome stuff if you want to follow her there!
I added a few goodies and gave her her gift over breakfast at Jerry’s with our daughters (who are also BFF’s, conveniently!)
Next up in October, was Francine. I know her better as Melrose Cakes, and she lives in Ontario. As you may have guessed, she is a real life professional baker! So I decided that I would make her a reversible apron for her birthday. She expressed to us that her favourite colour is pink – so I made sure to incorporate a lot! Here is a picture of my goofy husband modelling one side!
I also made her a boxed zipper pouch with the cross stitch blocks on the front. Stuffed it with goodies and sent it to Eastern Canada!
Next up was Tarra, another fellow member of the Saskatoon Modern Quilt Guild and also a good friend of mine. I decided to pull up my big girl socks and attempt a Sew Together Bag for her. I made it almost entirely out of Cotton and Steel, mine and Tarra’s current favourite. I don’t have good photos of the actual bag – but I do have Tarra’s reaction to opening her gift!
We are having so much fun sending birthday gifts across Canada! We took a break for December and January and will reconvene in February for Sonya’s birthday. Stay tuned!!
