2,000,000 stitches and I enjoyed the last few......

I think my machine is ready for a service.......again.  2,000,000 stitches since it's last one and that was in December!  I guess I have been doing some sewing!  How do I know she has done 2,000,000 stitches?  Because a little symbol starts flashing at me telling me that she has.  Cool huh!

And why did I enjoy the last few stitches so much?  My quilt group is making a friendship quilt for one of our number called Sharon.  It is called a "circle of friends" and I have shown you some of the blocks made up till now here.  Then here I told you how I was making an extra doll for Sharon and intended to make two - one nice and pretty, just like she is supposed to be, like this


The second doll is to be a joke  - to give Sharon a laugh!  I wasn't sure what sort I should make and finally settled on either a pregnant lady or a rock chick!!!  I decided that I liked the Rock Chick best.  I decided she had to have wild hair, tight black pants and a plunging neckline. 
And here she is!

Back when I first posted my draft patterns LaDonna suggested I include a tattoo!  Great idea!
Here is your tattoo LaDonna, well two tattoos and thanks for the suggestion!

Oh, and by the way!  I even made sure she had some cleavage!  Just a little extra padding!  I showed my boys today coz I was really pleased with her and they both told me it was so inappropriate!  Guess I must have got it right!!!!  Hee Hee!!!  Personally I love my little rock chick.  If Sharon wants her, she can have her, but if she doesn't I am going to give her a really good home somewhere in my office.

Till next time............happy stitching!!!
