The Dreaded Project

Our quilt club challenge this year was to create an avatar and present it at the September meeting.  I signed up on impulse and soon found I dreaded working on this project.  I wasn't altogether sure what an avatar is, except I have seen a movie by that name.  Here is my effort.

I began with Amy Bradley’s Quilter's Yearbook, which I won as a giveaway…thank you, Amy.  However, her facial features were created using techniques developed by Carol at Mamacjt.  Like me, she is a little bit wonky.  It looks a little like someone sat on her glasses and a friend kindly pointed out that it also looks like she has had a broken nose sometime in her life.  But like me, she’s most content when sitting at a vintage Singer with a pile of scraps, piecing.  She’s my avatar and I’m sticking with her.
