Here is a lovely Civil War display at Deb's Cats 'n Quilts in Franklin TN. My friend Kathy N. took me for a drive out of town, which I can tell you I totally appreciated, although I was unknowingly coming down with flu at the time, which was followed by bronchitis, all of which overlaid the most recent chemotherapy treatment, I mean for heaven's sakes.
This most recent chemotherapy session went much better. I am wondering and hoping if the next one might be the last one. No way to know, the doctor is playing it by ear, seeing how long the chemotherapy will continue to kill.
Rembrandt the Unreal continues to shove around and pull fabric stacks out to make a nice sleeping alcove for herself. Back to charm school. Or reform school.
I was going to wait to show this until I got it quilted, but oh well, here it is now. Recognize it? I got permission from Kathie of Inspired by Antique Quilts to show my version of the quilt she borrowed from her friend Lorre, posted about on June 22nd. Had to drop everything and make this one.
Last and definitely least, here is my first attempt to make an Izannah Walker doll. Lord. Well, I drafted her body pattern, which is fairly good (legs need to be chunkier, noted on pattern for next try), her applied thumbs are very good, and her "second skin", typical of the Izannah dolls, is fairly good (needs some revisions, noted for next try), but the modeling of the head (paperclay over a fabric-stuffed head) is awful and the painting job is marionette-ish. At least she no longer looks like Winston Churchill as she did at the beginning. At one point, she also looked like a boulder in a stream. I suppose I shall make the silly thing a dress, but I'm looking forward to making a second doll at some point. I didn't even get to the stockinette look that is typical of an Izannah, or the aged look.
Have a good day, everybody.
