Was on again last night and following what I have been working on over the last year I finished off the 12th and last  in the series of Sunbonnet Sue door hangers.   Seeing that St Patrick's Day is celebrated in March I decided to call this months Sue "Shamrock Sue".

I have really enjoyed my year long project of creating a different Sue to represent each month of the year.    Miss M loves getting a new "Sue" each month.   It is a ritual that we talk about what "Sue" represents and then we hang it on the door of her room together.    I have put  some photos of previous "Sues" below.  I started in April last year so the first one represents April and the last one is for July.

In the photo below it starts from August and goes to November

And in the final photo it starts at December and ends with March

I now have to find another project which I can work on to fill the gap that "Sue" will leave.   But firstly I am going to see what all the other clever crafters and sewists got up to last night over at
Sugarlane Designs.

Back soon and in the meantime

Linking with One Monthly Goal

Happy sewing all
