I loved V's idea of a fabric portrait, but at the same time thought "This is SCARY!!!".
I don't really like having my picture taken - so that was hurdle # 1. And I am not really artistic - reason # 2, and then I could have come up with a million other reasons why I should NOT do this. But I signed up and now I better deliver!
So here is my humble 1st attempt, probably more to come. It's nothing completed, but my play time is up.
Ok, so I took several portrait pic's, deleted them, took some more, deleted them, .... And finally thought: this is the ONE!
My printer went on strike, neither could I re-size the photo to a decent size, but this is just a concept.... and I was on a mission. I left the pic up on my laptop screen, took some steam-a-seam 2, held it against the screen and followed outlines & some details with a pencil. This was just to overcome the non-artistic part... you may be light years ahead of me!
Found some fabric for the first go around, tried different backgrounds and this is where I stand.
If you know me, you may recognize me - or not?
Now you took a peek and hopefully you laughed or smiled and said, I could do this sooo much better. Well, please, come and join! If I can do this, what are YOU waiting for? And boy, is it ever fun!

Wish my hair would ever stay in place like this - I got curls that don't like being told what to do...
