Another one?

Yes, another one!  I joined another swap!  Big surprise, huh?  Then, after I signed up, I was perplexed on what I should make.  This swap "For the Love of Solids" require that everything be made with only solids...duh....thus the name (hello)!  We had our choice when we signed up to request things like a sewing machine cover, a wall hanging (mini quilt), tote bag, table runner or perhaps a set of placemats.  Who knows what I asked for......I don't remember, but my partner was open to whatever I wanted to make.......how nice of her!!!  Naturally, I wanted to do something different, something no one else might think to do and so I drew a drawing of someone and asked if my partner might like herself in fabric:

Is this you?  Do you want it to be?

I asked in the Flickr post that if she thought this might be cool, to list her hair color, style, eye color, and if she wore glassed, etc. so I could get an idea of how to make her.  I did do my stalking homework prior and sort of knew her general age so that was the easy part.  Thankfully, she thought it might be a fun idea too and responded with all the information I needed.  I must say that I am super in love with the results, but alas, can't show you 'cause she will know immediately that it's her if I reveal the whole thing.  Surely don't want to wreck the surprise!!  I can show you the sneak peek though........

For the Love of Solids - Sneak peek

Too bad I have to wait until Sept 1st to send it.  That's a long wait!
