She She She She She She She Made~She Made February
A while back, Therese was at an Arts Festival and came across these Susan Clayton Clay Faces and asked six other ladies to make something with them and join us for our February She Made~She Made. Please take a few moments and see what the ladies made and also go over to see Susan's beautiful and expressive sculptures. You will be so glad you did :-)
Here's The List of Lovely She Maders:
Therese ~ Shirley ~ Bobbie (who was vending at the same Arts Festival) ~ Tanya ~ Hope ~ Cynthia ~ Alicia
I kept this face with every beading project I was working on from the moment she arrived at my house. I was hoping she would reveal herself to me. She didn't have much to say except "Keep It Simple and Keep It Warm~This winter is a beast!" There was also a need I could not shake...I want to be able to always have the ability to see the back of her if I need to. The back of her head has a thumbprint on it. It was important to me to not glue it or permanently cover it up. I want to know I can place my thumb there if I want to. I decided to use a swatch of fabric I picked up from an upholstery store and an old button from my Gram's stash. I worked on her for a couple weeks, just with the fabric and the button and her sweet face. I was trying to make a cape. Finally, late last week, she insisted it be a scarf for these brutal winter days. So I honored her request, but a pin on the back and I know at any time I can snip a couple threads and see her thumbprint on the back. I knew she would tell me what to do. She has that silent strength about her. I adore her.
Thank You Therese!!!
You are a great partner~it was fun expanding our SM~SM :-D
