Coincidentally, Diane "revealed" a previous design that I model stitched for her, Spring Band Sampler. You can see it on her blog here:
I put a few more stitches in LHN Family Sampler:
...and a few more stitches in one of the PS Summer Samplers:
I may have mentioned that one of my DS's was hired as a model once for a drawing class at the community college here. (It was a very interesting experience for him....a lot harder for him than he'd expected.) I recently found out that one of the students painted a portrait of one of her sketches from that day and that she decided to give it to us after it was featured in an art exhibit. I went to pick it up yesterday. Now we have to figure out where the best place would be to hang it. Right now "he" sits on my couch and I've startled a few times walking into the room and seeing "him" there. (The real "he" is away at college.) I think the artist did a pretty good job except she got his eye color wrong. It will be a very nice keepsake for him. (He LOVES playing his bass so he'll really like this.)
I hope everyone has a great weekend!
