The "ladies" of 2012

The other day I decided to make a list of everything I sewed in 2012 and I was overwhelmed!  No wonder I never had time to even read a book!  I did have my favorites and in another post I'll recap some of those, but for now I must recap my marvelous bunch of 2012 ladies.  I enjoy making them sooo much that if I could, I would do this all the time and make nothing else...........(I'm thinking that it might get boring after awhile though, huh????)  No matter!  For now I am having a ball and for all of you who have employed my services for a fabric portrait, I thank you tons!!  Each one of you is very special to me!!!  XXXOOO!!!!  So.......bring on the drumroll......here are my 2012 ladies......numbers #20 through #29.

The 2012 Ladies

Presently, I am working on #30, #31, #32 and #33 (if you can believe???) and I am having a ball!  Believe it or not, one of them is not a sewer but had specific requests on what she wanted as embellishments on her quilt.  Just wait until you see it!!!  Such fun!  Just this week, I mailed out #30 and #31 and since they are outside of the US, it might be awhile until I can reveal them.  All in due time!

So, for now, I must get back to my "ladies".  I sure hope you enjoy them as much as I do.  If any of you are interested in commissioning a portrait for yourself, e-mail me at the address on my sideboard and we can talk.  I'd LOVE to add you to my 2013 group!

I highly recommend that if you can save up the money, it's well worth the money to have one of these. I Imagine it will go on my casket as I leave this world but hopefully not anytime soon. I have more compliments/conversations over my quilt portrait than just about anything in my sewing collection. It makes an awesome gift for any occasion or do like me and get one made for yourself!! I don't usually do things like that for myself but I've been so pleased with my Lady #19 there's been no regrets!! Carol your talent is awesome!
Blessings
