First, I must show you my doll quilt that I received on Tuesday. (Actually, I didn't open it until yesterday because I hate to be the one who is all done first. That happened to me the last time, and it's no fun so I had my DH hide the package until yesterday!) I like the anticipation to linger, and wonder which one I might get. Funny thing is that I thought I might get the one I did. I sorta put a little "hint" in my mosaic. Duh! It was made by the talented Teresa from Lochside quilter:
So pretty and she included so many nice goodies too.
BUT, onto the really fun stuff! I am LOVING making these ladies, my friends! I get such joy just drawing them and then it's very hard to decide which will be put to fabric next. Yesterday, I drew two of my friends, so I'm thinking they might be done next week, but let me tell you a bit about our star of today. We all know, Gwendolyn, or someone just like her. A sweet, sweet, little older lady with her blue eye shadow, overly pink lips, and tons of blush. Can't you just hear her tiny voice calling you, "sweetie"? She was just itching to be "born".
Naturally, she had to have blue eyes......after all, she must match her eye shadow, you know. LOL
I just love the procedure, watching them "grow" to life from the original drawing......oh, guess I forgot to show you that yet......
Funny how the drawing always makes them look younger than the fabric does. I've noticed that this happens a lot. Wonder why?
Did you check out those template earrings? Cool, huh? (I thought that was brilliant, if I do say so myself!) And ta-da......the finished Gwendolyn......(but first I'll show her pretty eyes):
As before, Gwendolyn is for sale. The wall hanging is 14 1/2 by 18 1/2 inches, finished with a sleeve, dowel for stability, and O ring, all ready to hang plus it's numbered (#2 in the ladies series) and personally signed by me never to be duplicated (until I die and my daughter either sells all my drawings or dumps them). The first $79 plus shipping takes her home. E-mail me at my address above right if you're interested. She really needs a new home! (Oh, and thanks for all your marvelous suggestions about future ladies. I will take them to heart!)
