Last Week’s 6x6 Square

Ok, so I’m a little behind, but I’m determined to get back on track this week with the 6x6 squares. That means doubling up, but I know I can do it!

Week5Thanks to everyone who voted for the “model” for this week’s square. In the end, I decided to go with this one, because she seemed to reflect my mood a little more. I'm going to have to do a little work to her face. As I was stitching, I made a bad decision to stitch invisible thread along her chin line; since invisible thread always seems to make those big needle-holes in the fabric, this made her look like she had a beard. I pulled the stitching out, but the needle holes remained. I tried covering them over with color, which of course didn't match the original color. At any rate, I didn't have the patience to try to fix her today, so that's a project for tomorrow.

This 6x6 square was influenced by all the work I was doing last week painting faces and fabric; by the rainy weather; and by my trip to Houston to see the Dr., which wasn’t as uneventful as I had hoped. It looks like I may have to have another surgery soon, so my painted woman’s pensive gaze seemed a little more fitting.

I’ll save the other painted gal for another week’s square.

Bummer on the surgery and the holes in the chin, but I still think she looks great.
