Weekend Update!

I wanted to share a bit more of the project that I'm working on at the moment.  It's pretty big, so I hope that I can get it all done in time.  Anyway, here's more!  Not necessarily the best shots, but better than the blurry teaser, that's for sure.  They're "paper dolls" can you tell?








I've gotten a considerable more amount done since these were take, but there's a lot to do.  I'm a bit worried about the hoop marks.  I've never had problems with them in the past, but they seem obvious and dark on this fabric.  It's strange really.  I'm going to wash the whole thing in Woolite when I'm done, but if that doesn't work them the whole thing is toast.  Wish me luck!

Be back later tonight with Caturday!

Thanks, guys! I'm kind of frustrated with this piece right now, so you kind words are very encouraging. I have a bunch of smaller paper dolls I'm working on for my etsy but this one was supposed to be one great big wall hanging. Since I'm not going to be able to keep it whole, I think these ones will have to join the others in the shop. I'm bummed my vision couldn't come to light, don't you just hate that?!
