okay- so here are some WIPS of the last HM piece. After a grueling weekend of sewing, I can actually say that I am done with it. YAY!!! I will post the finished images sometime tomorrow. I didn't have time to post as I went along, so this is a big batch of pictures of the work that went into it:
I had so much fun making the gator. :D The girl on the other hand, proved to be temperamental, but after 3 tries, I made a head that I liked.
I hand-sewed on all the leaves that make up the bushes on the sides of the piece, and pretty much hand sewed everything else to the BG where I couldn't get my machine to do it- which was a lot more places than I'd anticipated, so I have some pretty sore hands today. :)
That's what it looks like without the border on. You'll have to wait until tomorrow to see the whole thing finished. These were great projects, but I have to say that I am glad they are done! Phew. Feel like I just finished a sewing marathon. :)
