Nikki, a portrait of a dog
Hello chums, this week I've finally finished the 'quirky' portrait that I was making of daughter's little doggie Nikki. It's only taken about 9 months to make!
As you can see the background has changed completely. It is a small patchwork piece which is slightly padded and also made Nikki a bit plumper with a bit of stuffing as she was looking a bit 'flat'. The body is made from an old cardigan.
Not to leave Archie out here, he is with a big bowl of grapes that were growing in our polytunnel,
now in the process of being made into wine.
They look yummy but not for eating raw sadly as they are small,pippy and a wee bit tart. Last year we had about 3 bunches which were added to some jam and that was rather delicious. Not bad for a 99p grape vine eh!
and so, on to this weeks Linky parties
