Yes, it's me! After completing five quilts (and DS's baby quilt) in six weeks, I felt the need for something smaller to work on. While surfing, I came across Christine Thresh's lovely site, and super patterns. Her pieced people look so good, and Christine, I would have sent for your pattern if I was able to wait for it to wing its way to me, but of course, I needed to try out this technique straight away! I also thought the people looked a bit formal, with their hands behind their backs, and wanted mine to be holding hands, gingerbreadman style. I'm aiming to make my parents' family, Mum, Dad, me and my family and brother and his family for a wall hanging for Mum's birthday present. Well, what else do you get for an 81 year old?
She's not got feet yet, but I plan to do some! She's wearing her trademark outfit of black top and jeans, and I even managed to find some fabric which simulates the blonde streaks in her hair. She says her hair should be bigger than that, and perhaps she's right.
What do you think?
