My wonderful friend elfies painted this for me! It is the Moon Goddess painted using various photographs of me.. 11×14″ in height, and painted with watercolor. Is she not the most perfect thing you have ever seen!? The eyes couldn’t be anymore like mine!! I wish you could see just how amazing it really is! I don’t have a frame for it yet so I don’t want to unwrap it until I am ready to transfer it, but I will try to scan some close ups then. Trust me.. its breathtaking! Not only can she make the most delicious perfume oils I have EVER smelled, she paints too! Seriously! Check out seventhscentlab! You have GOT to sample some of her perfume oils! They are amazing! I have tried dozens upon dozens and I have YET to find one I didn’t like… my favorite so far is a toss between Lonely Ghost and Bastet. I LOVE♥LOVE♥LOVE her products! I will be back again for that other commission we talked about Maria! ♥♥
On another note… I finished the baby blanket! I am adding the fringe on it now.. then all thats left is to wash and slightly block. The ends don’t curl when you add the fringe, but it needs to dry flat.. I don’t think it will even need pinned. I can’t even begin to tell you how HAPPY I am to be finished with that blanket! I even had to rip some more out when doing the last couple rows! For an advanced knitter and such a simple pattern, it sure created a lot of problems! lol I learned that I am better at knitting lace because I HAVE to pay attention to what I am doing, unlike simple patterns… I usually knit while watching television or on the phone.. I think THAT was the problem.. when I watched something interesting my knitting sucked! LOL Ahh.. my first finished product in 2007!
