Some Kind of Progress......


Just thought I'd show you how she's coming along.....still lots to do. I need to make some shabby embellishments for the lower part.

Another sketch (waiting for wood...I keep reminding DH :-)
And whilst I'm on the subject of drawings.....have you seen the new 50p bags in Sainsbury's; rather lovely don't you think? Very strong too, they should last a long time.

And finally, just playing with Photoshop......aaaarrrggghhhh!!!!!

Great Linda, although I think there might be more passion than piety in the altered image. Lovely bag, unfortunately my Sainsbury's orange bag seems to be lasting me a lifetime too!

She is lovely. You are so talented. Yep my orange Sainsbury's bags are going strong too. Maybe we can alter those by painting something on them at least make it look a bit different lol!

She's gorgeous Linda and with hair that colour she'll be a live wire! I love the Sainsbury's bag but haven't seen them in the branch I go to - I'll keep a look out next week.
