AED Day 15 -Halfway Point




It is Day 15 of the Art Every Day Month challenge, and this is what I'm working on today. It is a fabric portrait of a young woman and I'm still in the process of designing it even as I begin sewing. That is how I usually work - with a rough, unfinished sketch which develops as I go along in the project.
It poured rain here most of the day yesterday, but there are signs of clearing today. I'm looking out my porch window at more leaves that need to be raked, but today is a day for inside work, reading the Sunday paper and sewing.
Hope everyone who reads this is having a great day!

She's wonderful! So lovely. I am in awe of folks like you who can do this. I couldn't sew a face if my life depended on it. At least not one that anyone would want for their own face. ;) Can't wait to see her complete.

You do beautiful work. I am not much of a seam"stress". It's funny how some thing that can relax one will stress another. I do admire those that do! I'm having a great day listening to xmas music. I think I will make some hot tea/honey. It's rainy and cool here!

You are so good at faces! Have I said that before? She looks very serene or as if she might have a secret. I look forward to seeing the whole thing.
