Yep – that’s right - TWO finishes! :-)
Above: Lynette Anderson O’Rourke’s ‘Saltbox Sampler’ cushion, and below, Lynette’s Christmas cushion. With the addition of our puppy into the family this year, I thought it fitting to decorate the cushion with a festive doggy button. Too cute.
Thank you SO much for the motivation you gave me after responding to my blog post about UFOs! The majority of you thought I should finish the project nearest completion (the sampler cushion) because that would spur me on to do more! And you were right! I finished the second cushion too, and there’s still time to make one of the dolls before the end of July – my original deadline! So as a majority request, I will be completing Madame La Chat by Stephanie Novatski. This is what she looks like on the pattern cover photo, please excuse my blurry pic!
She’s quite a dame, eh? I couldn’t imagine many a feline brave enough to say “no” to her… not if they want to keep their nine lives! :-) That’s what I love so much about dolls – they have such great character. I think my version will be softer in expression as well as appearance – but we shall see – as they all tend to take on a personality of their own!
If you’d like to check out a few different versions of Madame la Chat together with some other gorgeous art doll creations, check out this post :-)
I’ve had a busy week sewing new designs and pattern-writing (more on that soon), and of course finishing my UFOs! What have you been up to? :-)
Hugs! Vikki x
