More ladies........

I sure hope you're not getting sick of meeting my lovely ladies.  I am having such fun making them, you just wouldn't believe.  Each is a challenge to see how close I can get to making them look like their photo and personally, I think I'm getting better and better!  (Tough to pat yourself on the back, huh???)  Today we have two from the US.  Numbers #36 and #37.

#36 is Olga.  As with most of my ladies, Olga is a quilter and avid sewer (or as I've been hearing lately, "sewist".  And where in the world did that come from anyway???  Sometimes I feel as though I'm really out of the loop!!)

Anyway, as normal, first I will post the drawing, then her pretty eyes, the quilt and thankfully the original picture of Olga.

  And the real, Olga.......!!!  She was real fun to do because Olga told me she likes color and if it's one thing that inspires me to no end, it's COLOR!!  Thank you, Olga!!


Next, we have #37, Jan.  I wish I could tell you how old Jan is because you wouldn't believe me!!!!  Seriously, folks, you wouldn't!!!  God has been very good to Jan!  (Much better than he's been to me, I have to admit!!  Phooey!!  'Course I suppose if I moved a bit more instead of sitting and sewing ladies all the time, I might look a bit better too????  BUT, we won't go there!!! )  Here's Jan....(in the same order!)

And here is Jan with "herself":

Now tell me that doesn't really look like her.  Not bad, huh?

So that's it for today.  I did have a few more things going, but I'll show you that stuff next time.  Until then, take care, stay warm, and have fun!

You totally rock us fabric ladies. Mine's the best one tho...you made me look SO good! lol Holy smackers, 37 ladies!

Needled Mom said...

You do such a wonderful job depicting the ladies. They are just fabulous.

Mary said...

You even got the half rimmed glasses the same. Love the hoop earrings. Yes, you done good. The word "sewer" is too close to the word that means the person who does your plumbing, so now we say sewist.

Joy said...

I never tire df these ladies, I am going to get me done as soon as I can. :)

Maria said...

They're great, Carol!

Sheila said...

Bloomin' brilliant!!

Wendy said...

I think the term sewist came about to stop people getting confused between those who like to sew and a place where ... excrement... flows
