Missing....2 turtle doves!

I know you are asking yourself, what is this crazy woman talking about now? Poor dear goes from one thing to the next with no rhyme or reason.......and you're right!!! But, my friends, do you remember this guy:

A Peacock in a Pear Tree

Ah-ha, now you know what I'm up to, I bet. Seems that I'm not such a hot shot drawer of turtles and need to work on that for a bit yet (thus the missing doves), BUT........(drum roll please........), I did finish 3 french hens so I thought I'd show them to you. (Incidentally, 4 Calling Birds are in the works and my brain is developing "however many geese a layin'" as I write this. (I always check the song to make sure that I'm pretty close to the original, mind you.) Seems my 12 days of Christmas will really be off numerically. LOL Oh well!!! Anyway, here are the 3 French Hens:

(The top one is supposed to be a french maid. Apparently, I'm not too "up" on my maid costumes!!) I do like the bows in the back though. :D And a close up:

Check out all those buttons!!! And I want you to know that I sewed them ALL on by hand too!

I hope that you all are proceeding with your colored mandalas from the last post. I finished another one this morning, but can't even take pics to show you since it's raining like crazy here. Hey, it could be worse! It could be snow.....ugh! Hope you have a fun week.

Now...back to my hens, geese, turkey, etc!

Oh no...no turtles yet? LOL!

I just adore your designs. I love the whimsy and creativity in each one!

What are you going to do with the set once you complete them? Do you have a special place to display them?
