It's All About Me!



Hosted by Marlene Bush and Madame Samm this hop is showcasing some really amazing creativity!  I wasn't quite sure how to approach it.  A bit nervous at my first ever blog hop, and having never tackled the techniques in Amy Bradley's adorable and well-written pattern, I pretty much stuck to it.



Minor changes, like the always-there gray roots, a bit longer hair, an attempt at nautical fabrics (the dress is actually from one of the Captain's cast-off shirts), and a nod to my cute little dog Elvis is about as far as I went.  I don't have quite the middle depicted here but wasn't certain of my ability to made that modification (in fabric or in real life - ha!), and it may have made more sense to put a glass of wine in that left hand!

Now, go look at the really creative work that has been done out there! And, be sure to check out the top three of the day at Sew We Quilt -- there's a really great drawing if you comment on everyone's blog!



Now, go check out the other "me's" -  and thanks for stopping by!

  1. How cool is it that you can sew on a boat!?

    Your ME turned out quite well. I take it that the Captain will not miss his shirt since you said it was a cast off? Hey it works wonderfully on your project.

    Sort of reminds me of the Fons and Porter long arm quilting machine ads where the husband's plaid shirt or his the bowling shirt has a hunk taken out of it--and they are saying "George will never miss this"
