A gift: an awesome Portrait

One day while I had a little time up my sleeve, I was blog hopping all over the show and came across this lady who made these *awesome* quilted portraits.  What a lovely idea!  I might get one for Mum for Christmas (and me too!).  So I emailed the lady straight away to find out the details!  Carol agreed to make me a couple, so I set to work to get a recent pic.  I took the camera around to Mum's and asked her to take my pic as I needed it to send to a mag for an advertisement, but first I needed to check the settings by taking HER pic!  Sneaky!  lol!
 
I can tell you Mum was SO pleased with hers!  Doesn't it look like her?!  Mum is Lady number 28:
 
 
And, here is Me!  I am lady number 29


They are SO cool!  I just love, LOVE them! I have mine hanging in my sewing room......
THANKYOU so much Carol!  You sure are one clever lady xx

So glad you like them, Sarah! I had a ball creating you and your Mum! Each of my "ladies" is very special to me, but doing your mother with her wild hair was especially fun! Many blessings!
