When I look back, it doesn't sound like this week will be much different from last week. I mean, I did something for a swap, made some more "bleep girls" and finished two "ladies". And this week, I need to start/finish two ladies (one is for a swap), hopefully draw a new design for my girl, and .........e-gads, I forgot already!!! Oh well, my list is around here somewhere!!! I'm telling you, the older I get, the more scattered brained I seem to be!! OR....maybe it's just this darn cold Wisconsin winter we're having. Perhaps the gas heat is finally getting to me!! In any event, let me show you "last week".......
I'm so glad you like my "bleep girls". I have really enjoyed making them, only I think I need to be done now. Believe it or not, my new Copic markers are running out of ink and I have already had to purchase 5 refills for various colors and replacements for two since I couldn't get the refills fast enough. So, here is a photo of the last batch for awhile. They're still for sale at $10 USD for US residents so grab them while you can.
Then, I have added two ladies to the mix and I'd like to introduce you. First off we have Lady #42, Justyna. She is a very pretty, young art teacher from the US and wanted me to do something with her art rather than sewing. (Nothing like a challenge, I say!!) It sort of reminded me of the "cupcake" teacher, if you remember. As normal, first I will show the drawing, then the eyes and finally, the finished likeness. Justyna asked that I not show the photo that I worked from so I naturally will respect her wishes.
Next we have Lady #43, Stephanie. Stephanie was a fun lady to work with. She actually sent me her picture and information before I even had a chance to discuss things with her, she was so excited. Good thing I was making ladies, huh? Just wait until you see her. She sent a photo of herself with her likeness and they are really a match.............pay attention!
Did you check out her earrings???? Too funny!
I think I will forego posting the drawing and eyes in the future. After all, drawings are drawings and eyes are eyes.....we all have them and you probably have seen enough after 43 sets. lol It's the finished product that's fun anyway!
Lastly, I must show you the 11x16 inch quilt I did for the Fab Little Quilt Swap for my partner. I call it, "Where's Waldo"?
Here he is:
So friends, that's it! Like I said, this week should be a repeat of last week, except you probably won't see #44 and #45 ladies for some time. Both live in crazy far away places and it will take forever for them to receive themselves, so you must wait too for the big reveal. Have a great week, my friends and so something fun!!
