progress

I've also taken inspiration from others....I have a large pointed nose but decided that a few lines here and there gets the message across :0)  ......today I will probably add a crumb border and try to do some quilting.
How is everyone else coming along?

KIM! It's you! ;-) I see some interesting details on your shirt! DO tell!

Ha its my trick in life to ...wear stuff that distracts from my aging face..!

Well, I use recycled sweaters and clothes in other projects so I just layered them on my portrait.....a piece of a cashmere sweater under a woven outer shirt.....dressed my portrait in real clothes :0).
Now to put that block together.......I'm certainly not an artist like some of the other ladies but I am enjoying the challenge..:0)

Happy Sewing

It is looking wonderful and the using your recycled clothing is a fun idea.
