Friday Faces

Hello friends - I hope you've had a great week.
Have you been up to anything creative?

Among other things, I've been working on a sketch for a new stitched profile picture.
This is my drawing which I'll transfer to fabric,
 then use some machine and hand stitching on it.

Cats always feel they need to get in on the act, don't they?

I've also been doing some other portrait sketches - 
they start out more detailed, then I simplify them to make them 
more suitable for stitching.
I'm trying to build up a set of stitched faces, for which I'll make up
little stories, then try to decide how to incorporated the 
stories into the pictures.

We just had a snowstorm here in northern New England yesterday,
with a possibility of more storms coming up.
It sounds like many people are having dreary, messy winters all over, 
which is a good reason to stay inside and be creative.
I hope, wherever you are as you read this, that you will have a 
wonderful weekend. I'm so happy you stopped by!

I love the sketch with the kitties and their surprised expressions! There is no snowstorm here but the weather has been totally uninspiring for days cold, wet, miserable! I am glad that I have enough materials in the house to keep me creatively busy! x

Love your portraits, Judy! :) The kitties getting in on the action are too cute.

Glad you're cozy inside working on your projects while the snow swirls out the windows. The snow missed us and is now melty and muddy, but we've also had so much sun!

Hope you have a wonderful week!
