Thanks, teacher!

I’ve taught at Maris Stella in Dur­ban, South Africa for the last 14 years. My daugh­ters Erin, nine (right), and Ella, six (left), both at­tend my school. This year they both had teach­ers whom I’ve known since be­fore they were born. Both girls have just loved these spe­cial ladies and had a won­der­ful year in their classes, so I wanted to gift them some­thing spe­cial, made just for them. I put to­gether two de­signs from Emma Cong­don’s Sum­mer chart book, a gift from is­sue 231, and used a font from another is­sue of for the teach­ers’ names. I chose a dif­fer­ent colour scheme for each teacher to match the pat­terned aida I had in mind. The gifts looked beau­ti­ful when framed and both teach­ers were very touched by their per­son­alised gifts!
