Crafty Catz #502- Optional twist- Paper piecing.

The sweet image I used is called
I coloured her hair and face with copics and paper pieced her kimono and parasol with a long hoarded piece of dsp (Far East) from DCWV.

I don't think yesterday's announcement of another 3 weeks lockdown came as much of a surprise to anyone, just stay safe and well - and keep busy!
Thanks for stopping by

Isn't she the sweetest little thing, gorgeous colouring and design Chris...we are hoping that NZ will stay in lock down longer as we are into our 4th week and getting worried the pressure may make her open us up again..can you believe some moron is suing our wonderful Prime Minister because they had to go into lock down, what idiots eh!..stay safe..
