Last time I told you that #10 and #11 ladies were on their way to their new homes, right? Hello! Then, why did I send the last one that I finished Monday off as #13? Duh! I think I am doing too many of these ladies and am losing my mind! It's time to stop! Besides, I have again joined the Mug Rug swap.......(my 2nd favorite swap in the world) and I need to concentrate on halloween mug rugs! First though, I'll show you #11 (Angie) since she has arrived and also another one that I did for the "For the Love of Solids" group swap.
#11 (Angie) you might also know as Retromama61. She commissioned me to do her for a special birthday that's coming up. She wanted something to remember it by, and I am so honored that she asked that I do that "something special". I hope she likes herself:
I LOVE doing eyes!!!
Actually, this whole ladies series started because of this next quilt. I joined the Love of Solids swap and hadn't a clue what to make. Then the light bulb went off and I posted a drawing of an imaginary lady and asked if my partner wanted me to make her. If so she was to give me her statistics. Many swappers responded, and luckily, my partner was among them. Well, I had such fun making her that I continued with the ladies. Finally, today her quilt arrived so now I may show you, Renee from Nellie's Niceties:
I think I'll just pretend that she's #12. LOL That way I don't feel like such an idiot!
Now onto a few other things. I also joined the Bitty Block Committee this month. When I discovered they were doing bugs, I couldn't resist. I had such fun making my "lady bug".
Don't be surprised if I don't change my icon in Flickr to "her". I think she's adorable! Cute, but wait until you see the whole "tribe" of them........you'll just have to smile:
I think googly eyes are so fun!! Because I thought they were so fun, I had to go back to Joannes to get more when I made this mug rug:
Bats have to have them too, you know!
So, that's it for today. I'm having cataract surgery this Thursday on my right eye. It's been blurry for awhile and when I finally dragged myself to the eye doctor, I was informed that I am legally blind in that eye so I guess it's time to get fixed, as the saying goes! I've heard only good things about cataract surgery, so I am hoping that I am one of the lucky ones to join that group. I will be back as soon as I can. Promise!!!
