my happy place....

My happy place is definately in my craft room. Every waking minute right now, i want to be creating something new.
Last weekend I worked on my self portrait. It was last months blog challenge and I had this idea for a while...
I started with the face - drew it out, colored the hair with colored pencils and used peach/ flesh strips for the face and neck.
I added all my favorite things into the quilting... doodling, free motion foot quilting, the alphabet, embroidery, buttons and some other goodies
I finished it off with a gathered headband, one of my new techniques and added a hanger with some osnenberg scraps
I wrote one of my little stories at the top and used some white paint to tone it down a bit
and voila..... me
onto my next happy place.... and I don't mean paying bills!
What's your happy place... share your pics and words with me and I will post them here this month.
