You might have seen a link on my blog to "The Gazebo House". That blog is owned by my dear friend, Rett! You must check it out! She and I have known each other for ages, it seems, although we have never met in person. Sometimes, it happens that way when you just seem to hit it off with a person on-line and eventually you are calling each other over the phone and chatting about everything. That's how it is with Rett and I.
When I decided to put my ladies to fabric, I naturally thought of friends I could copy. Since I never really met Rett in person, (although I have seen pictures of her), I could basically do whatever I wanted as long as it sort of depicted her........(if you know what I mean.) I must admit that I had to ask her for her eye color. He-he......we've never gotten THAT close!
Now, before I reveal my creation, let me tell you a bit about Rett. On the drawing, it appears as though she could be a waitress. While this is totally untrue (although her husband might not agree), she was a critical care nurse in another life and thus the hat. She also is carrying dishes.......(another indication of luncheon help?).......not really! Rett is an AVID china collector! In fact, (and she'll probably shoot me for this)......she has dishes hidden all over her house including under the sofa since she is totally out of room in hidden locations. In addition, she is a wonderful sewer and makes gorgeous creations for her darling granddaughter, Miss C. So, let me present my friend, Rett........
And the finished wall hanging:
I hope you like her as much as (we) do. She told me that she wishes she looked that good. LOL (I did knock a few years off of her!!)
Incidentally, Gwendolyn is still here. The "dear" didn't sell yet, so if you're interested, let me know. Thanks for reading my blog. I hope I'm not boring you with all these ladies, but I am having such fun!
