After I got over the initial excitement of my painted background, I was struck with a sudden infusion of self doubt.  Could I do this, would I be able to make what I needed to, was I capable of it, was my vision even the right one?

After struggling with that for about 12 hours, I decided to make a list of what needed to be done and tackle it in little bits.

Are you ready?!?

This week and next, I'm taking you through the construction of a piece that took, in actuality, just over six weeks.  At the time of my writing this, I believe I have another 20 to 30 hours to put in, and then it will be done - but at the present time, it is looking AWESOME (even if I do say so myself) and I couldn't be more pleased.

It's my first piece of 2013, it's my first piece in fulfillment of my vision of the kind of work I've decided to do, and it looks (even unfinished) EXACTLY the way I imagined it.

So, are you ready?!  Let's go! More after the jump...

Giveaway - Mrs.Lincoln's Dressmaker

Thanks for playing!

Today, I'm giving away a copy of Jennifer Chiaverini's latest novel, Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker.  A departure from her Elm Creek Quilts series, I found this one to be a fast read with an interesting story.  Following is a Q & A with Ms. Chiaverini.

Crowing about it...

This actually isn't part of the bird series, it was a Christmas gift for my dear friend, Beth Berman of  SewSew Art.  Beth loves crows - so I thought I'd make her one. :)

Hope you have a fabulous weekend - and I'll see you on Monday for a husband in the bird series!

Wait, what?

See you Monday!
