...so imagine my joy (not!) when both Luke's teacher and Kira's daycarer nominated green as their favourite colour. Earlier in the year I made a green disappearing nine patch for Luke's teacher when she got married and blogged it here. I was going to do a green log cabin for Kira's carer (who has also cared for Luke) but with time running short I decided on a raggedy edge instead.
Now let me explain about this woman. She is wonderful. Leaving my children in her care is the closest I could come to leaving them with family. I was very lucky in that she started in the preschool room just as Luke was going in there and moved to the babies room just as Luke finished daycare and Kira started. With our move to another state at the end of the year, I will miss her dreadfully.
So with great pleasure I present "Carer Extrodinaire"
I also used this stuff called EQ Printable Fabric for the first time to make a label. I'm so impressed with it! My blanket stitching (and my spelling if you look closely enough!) leaves a lot to be desired, but it was my first attempt and I would like to thank Janet McCaffrey of Primrose Design for the wonderful instructions that were so easy to follow. I apologise for the big green blobs in the photo, but I wanted to remove anything that identified the receiver or the centre they work at.I just know that come tomorrow I will be a blubbering mess as I give this to her!
