Friday Finishing . . .


Today will be spent adding borders, 
and if there's time, 
the words that will finish this piece
(although there are quite a few words
to hunt down, so that may take awhile):




And here's the drawing that inspired it: 



Sometimes it's fun to see the translation from paper to fabric.  I find that my things are "happier" in fabric than on paper, a change that I'm not usually pleased with but don't seem to be able to control.  In this case, I almost picked out her eyes when they turned out to be so borderline "cute" but I hung on until the rest of the features were added and decided I kind of liked her hesitant expression. It will work well with the words.

I'll show you the finished piece in August, so stay tuned! 


   
In the meantime, 
here's wishing you 
a wonderful 
Fourth of July celebration, 
with plenty 
of "ooohs" and "aaaahs". . .




 


Happy Weekend!
