Staying Busy

I finished the quilting on the Woodland Creatures Quilt last night. WOW! It was hard work because of the stop gaps caused by the appliques! But I forged on and got it done! Unfortunately, I started too far down on the backing fabric and ran out so now the quilt will be 2 inches shorter on each side than what I had originally planned. But all is well because I had given it extra inches to start off anyways...
Here it is on the long arm just before quilting.

Here's the back of it after quilting... The blank area is the back of the trunk of the tree. It only appears wrinkled on the picture because of how the quilt is draped on the machine.

Here's the close up of the quilt work. I'm really happy with how it turned out! =o)

I also had a couple of hours between getting back home from quilting and bedtime and wanted to start on Pixar's face. Here's a drawing of her eyes.

Here it is after it was painted. I still have to work on the eye details (eyelids, eyelashes, pupils)...

I also started sculpting some to get a feel of the character and decided to stop because it was looking more and more like Yoda to me. =o(

What do you think? =oP
