Years ago I made a giant Candy-gram for my Dad, incorporating all of the candy names into a story. Here lately my mind has been spinning with the many versions that could come out of my bag of selvedge edge strips that I've been collecting. But I'm stingy and hate to use a whole lot of any one thing in a project. So as my creative juices were going, I grabbed up some old cloth napkins, ripped them into smaller sizes and started making some collages. Not much planning, but I had some definite people in mind as I made each one.
Which them became part of a drafting kit in a pencil pouch along with some mechanical colored pencils. These were made for the retiring Board Members of our guild. I will really miss working with each of them, but I look forward to the new board members that will be serving with me this next year. I also made some little pouches for tiny embroidery scissors for those that had served as a Committee Chairperson. Hopefully they will all be able to enjoy some time being creative.
