Missing persons.....

The police have their missing persons but then, so do I!  lol  If you noticed, I am missing a few "ladies" from my ladies series.  Way back in the middle of October I was commissioned to do these sweet gals.  The first one, #24 (Sharon from Australia) asked me to do her, (it was to be a Christmas gift from her husband) and she promised not to open it before Christmas.  Considering the mail time between Wisconsin and Australia, it wasn't much of a wait because I think it took over 4 weeks just to get to her.  As always, I will show the drawing, the close-up of her pretty eyes, and then the quilt.

And here is the photo of Sharon that she sent for me to work from:



Next, we have the lovely, Robin who is lady #27.  She also was a Christmas gift and was commissioned by her generous sister, Melinda.

She also was kind enough to allow me to use the original photo so that you could see the resemblance:


So there you have it......2 more beautiful ladies added to the growing list.  I do have two more to show you next time....a wonderful mother and daughter duo, numbers 28 and 29, again from Australia.  Stay tuned........

I love your ladies. How does one commission a work?

Do you ever do multiple gals on one quilt? I have three sisters.

Or my BFF and me.

I *guess* I could do individual, but one quilt w/ all members, reproduced multiple times would be the 'ultimate'.

can't wait to hear!

Robin's quilt got lost in the mail over Christmas and she finally received it yesterday. I am so glad it was sent back to me after my stupid mis-addressing it the first time.
Thank you again for creating this for my wonderful sister.
