Have a drink, toss some pieces onto a background, have another drink, shuffle them around until you find some eyes etc. have another drink, another shuffle, nail it down (as my DH would say :lol: ), have another drink, chuck on some beads/buttons (literally) & stitch them where they fall - no don't move that one just to fill up the space! leave it empty! Finish the bottle, go for a little lie-down and see what you think of it in the morning :lol: :lol:

PS. extra shuffles & drinks can be added as required, but you cannot have one without the other :wink: :lol:

Nancy, I think you would be surprized if you just start fusing fabric to fabric and just snip and sewing and not think about it--it could be really fun for you.

Thanks Nancy. I just used left-over pieces of fabric that had steam-a-seam on them that I just couldn't bring myself to throw out. It is very liberating to not worry about shape or colour, and just have fun. I know you would enjoy it once you got going Nancy, give it a try, go on, go on, go on! :D

Hi Rita - I love your faces! These are one more thing on my to-do list, but they will probably keep sliding down since unleashing my creativity is VERY uncomfortable for me! It'd be a good thing for me to do, but very difficult to make myself do it!

Thanks, Rita! I was going to watch it last night but was overcome by other events (nice ones!), but I have it on my schedule to take a break and watch it today. I could tell by how special your faces were that your creativity burst out from the seams, so to speak, because they are lively, colorful and just delightful. I really want to try and make one.

Twiglet, the 'drum-head' portrait was for my step-daughter who is a musician and artist herself. She loved it! The funny thing is that there is a certain likeness to her in it that I did not do intentionally. :) I thought that I had these two on my profile as well but I didn't so here they are. The first one is of me and the second one is my DH:

You'll enjoy it. :D

Rita what did you friend say when you gave her the drum face with spaced out eyes and a crazy look :lol: I've drawn a friend with leafy hair and a dog across her head. When I have my machine back I'll sew it.

Rita and Twiglet--how did I miss the Yvonne Porcella episode? Love the faces both of you did--so colorful, so much fun to stitch, I am sure. I just finished watching Melinda Bula; it will be Yvonne Porcella this evening for me. Thank you! :D

Twiglet, love the self-portrait - it's a work of art! And the Avatar is wonderful too. I just made a sheep quilt! Love sheep. Thanks BJ. :D
