A little over a year ago, I shared with you that Carol, over at Mamacjt had created my mom as part of her ladies series (Mom is lady #59).
I love Carol's Ladies so much! Especially Mom! Right after I did this for Mom, I gave my hubby all of Carol's email info & told him how much I would love to be one of Carol's ladies too.
Christmas 2013 came and went. No Lady for me. And then my birthday passed. Still no Lady. Boo.
In December, when we were in Arizona I loved seeing "Mom" hanging on the wall of her kitchen nook (don't worry, it was the fabric Mom hanging there, not my real mom! Ha!) Again I passed all of Carol's info on to hubby. And again, Christmas passed and I did not become a fabric lady. So, I decided to take matters into my own hands!
Early this month, I emailed Carol and signed up to be Lady #73! Within a week, Carol emailed me back that "I" was ready to mail! I whipped up this little pencil pouch as a thank you, tucked my check inside and sent it off to Carol....

and just a few days later, a box arrived, carefully packed by Carol, with ME inside!
I just adore this! She really nailed it, from the colors she used, to my red glasses, all of it! I can't wait to rearrange my mini wall (yes, again) and hang her (umm ME!) in my studio. Thank you Carol! Such a gift you have for capturing people in fabric!
