I'm sure you've heard the song, "Stuck on You", right? Well, I'm stuck on making these ladies, I think. I do have some other obligations that I've taken on with more swapping, and projects, but until I get these ladies out of my head, and the ones I promised other people finished, I just can't seem to move on.
Today, I'm going to introduce you to my friend, Susie. Susie is #8 in my Ladies Series and truly is a dear friend of mine. (She's also a dear friend of, Shirley, who you met in the last post.) Susie does not live in Siberia, though (like Shirley does). She actually is only about 5 minutes away from me. LOL
I had a heck of a time with Susie. I drew her 3 times and literally gave up. I could not get her right for love or $$. When I showed her my last attempt, she said she looked better on the drawing and to make her like that so I did. LOL So this is her (or at least how she'd like to look):
That, of course, was in process. I should show you the drawing first, I suppose:
And the finished product:
Susie is a lover of Kaffe fabrics and uses them a lot in her personal sewing. Incidentally, she works at Patched Works in Elm Grove, so go see her and tell her that you met her here. She'll flip! Check out her eyes, which are blue/brown.
Then, next is Annie, who is #9 on our hit parade list of ladies. Annie is really freezeframe03. You probably will find real photos of her in her Flickr stream. But here she is in fabric. First the procedure:
And now for the rest:
Seriously, Annie is really that blond, which makes it hard to see against the white background, but after she received herself in the mail today, she told me that she is going to outline stitch around her hair to make it more noticeable. I can't wait to see what she does. Incidentally, Annie has a blog and it's on my blog list, so go check her out. She's really funny!
So there you have it. More ladies and I know you're probably really getting sick of them by now. After all I'm thinking it's close to a month that I have been making them. Only a few to go, I promise! Thanks for your patience.....really!!!!!
