What's In A Name

Alien - I need a Name

Here is the latest on my wild woman. I used "I Kan Dee" chalk on
her face. I'm in the process of making her face flat with a poufy back. She may even be added to a container/box of some kind, not sure yet.
I would like to add some radical hair but we will see.

I slept most of yesterday trying to catch up on lack of sleep from days before. Hubby informed me we have eight weeks before our anniversary cruise. I'm going to have to go on vacation to get rest. lol

Last night hubby took me to dinner and then the book store. Well as usual I found a new purchase. I bought "The New Creative Artist" by Nita Leland. I am a book addict. I also received my new Quilting Arts magazine in the mail. I'm not sure but I thought if you had a subscription to a magazine the whole point was getting it before anyone on the newstands. I think my post office is still holding pieces of my mail back.

Very nice Dove. Can't wait to see the finished product. Yes, some wild hair would be awesome.

Sherry said...

Maybe you should name her "Kandee"???

Fannie said...

Great work in progress, Dove. Love her face! Can't wait to see her hair.

I enjoyed Nita's book.

I'm always so intrigued by the fiber arts. I love how artists stich amazing stories into their quilts. And, who can resist all of the luscious fabrics. Your stichery is inspiring. That book, "The New Creative Artist" by Nita Leland sounds fab. Tell me more about it.

Celia said...

Oh, I forgot to mention, I'm a book addict as well. Lately, because I am now debt free (a five year goal reached), I've been celebrating by buying books. I think I need a vacation so I can read them all!

I love her expression, Dove, it reminds me of Mona Lisa's smile. Like she has a secret that she'll never reveal. A quiet self confidence. Pretty neat! Read about your mishap while walking Bear and praying that God will heal. Congratulations on your 400th post - know that you are an inspiration to all who visit your blog, especially me.
