Update on Life 5
The hair is almost done, just a bit more defining and twiddly bits. I really love how the paint bounces over the stitches and gives little hints of reflected light.
The cushion below has some shadow now, and I'll continue to build around this.
I think I'm going to put a pair of booties on the table in the space under her arm.
I took the quilt into Leamington Spa Art Gallery and Museum on Friday to talk about it's progress, so it's already had an outing.
Although I've been moaning about my lack of progress on it, it is that time of year. Marzipaning the cake, making pretty gift tags, putting together a photo album of 2012 for my mum (we've had an eventful year!) and having the odd lunch out with the family seem to have taken over just at the moment, but I must press on.
Can't wait to start Life 6 which also, strangely enough, has an Oriental theme.
