Time is ticking ...

Time has been ticking away and what do I have to show for it ? Very little in the creative aspect of my life I'm afraid .My Gall Bladder decided it was time we parted company, so Ive been in recovery mode .Many of my peeps gave support ( THANKYOU) and shared stories of painful gall bladders of their own. I'm hearing that I'm now part of a not so exclusive club !
Very Special INDEED!

Made this canvas for my dear and very loveable friend CARMEL (who creates awsome wire work so go check her out !) ,for a canvas niche swap run on a super yahoo group called INKredibly RT. Canvas niche covered in fabric and painted in various colours, sprayed in walnut and glimmer mists.Delight air dry clay for the face, texture paste piped on for the hair,which was coloured using glimmer mist, highlighted in gold paint.
Made her crown using a wire jig, then hammered and shaped it to fit her head.

Now back to my SEWING. Is there every to be a day that the word SEWING doesn't feel foreign in my mouth ! Hope so.....

Oh Dawnie this canvas is deluxe, but I hope you don't mind me saying this - I think it needed just a little more hair - ROFLOL! beautiful and the eyes worked out just right.
I have a job for when you come down - make me sloth! I have not relaxed at all yet.
See you in three sleeps - yeah!
