I can’t imagine a life without it.
Red, Yellow and Blue.
Black and White.
That is all you need.
A bit of swishing and my favorite colors are born.
Oh! And metallic Gold!
I made every stitch of this piece with my own hands.
Except her crown.
I made the frame
from a piece of baseboard I found in the basement.
You can see layers of red, white and green paint
and holes from the square nails I removed,
The patina is natural and it is a gift
that it wasn’t thrown away when it was replaced.
It has to be the original from the house, circa 1848.
The rest is all clay…
The Lady of Guadalupe was my inspiration
and I hope I got the Spanish right:
Santa Maria, Madre de Dios,
ruega por nosotros pecadores.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
Pray for us sinners.
I hope you like her.
Tomorrow is Mia’s 16th Birthday.
I started baking the cake tonight.
A birthday cake is a labor of Love.
Love to you all!
