Sadie has been drawing these figures in profile for about a week now. She is really good at copying my drawing style, which is so sweet, but when she does drawings like these, completely from her own brain, it rocks my world. The one-eye profile, thing (or is she a cyclops, thing?) is too good.
After seeing the blank books over at soulemama, I needed to make some hardback ones as well. I have an insane amount of supplies on hand, especially of the paper/board variety because of mailorder, so I used backing board and cram cream tape I already had. Then, I just used 6 sheets of printer paper and sewed down the middle with the sewing machine, through the tape and all. You know what I mean? Super easy.
She loves soft crayons and pastels. She's all about the full saturation of color.
Okay, the gingham aprons for Tie One On are outstanding! I am sick as a dog. Runny nose, cough, and just feeling horrible, so I will get to the gallery when I can, but it might be later this week. Thank you all so much! Seeing all the chicken scratch was so sweet, I almost got weepy. I think I am tired. Either that or I am the type of person that can get weepy about embroidered aprons. Off to sit on the couch at Grammie's and watch Madman. I heart tivo.
