This is what I finished today. It is a birthday banner for great-niece Keira who will be 2 years old on Friday. It is little scallops of different fabrics edged with a scalloping shears and sewn into a banner. The idea is from Alicia Paulson's book Stitched in Time which was published in November. There are several more things I hope to make from this book. I think maybe what I want to do this year is actually be more productive as my sister was speaking of in her blog. More creative will be nice, too. I think my motto for the year will be : In with creativity and productivity Out with negativity. I hope Keira and her family will like this.
