This is the type of thing I have no experience with and want to become better at, so was ready to jump in when V put out the challenge.
Here is my original photo:
I do not like photos of myself and rarely show them in blogland.
And here is my completed portrait:
I am very happy with the hair, eyes, glasses, shirt and chin. Very unhappy with the nose and mouth. I loved doing the free motion quilting and look - just like Anne, I did a pebble background! This is the first time I've done this and would use it again on a small project. It takes forever and lots of thread.
Thanks V for the challenge. I learned a lot.
