Happy Birthday to Megan!!!
Megan is turning 28 today. Baby. She is the baby in our family. The
accident, no blessing surprise at the end of 7 children. She is five years off. She is still looked at as the little girl that we must all love and protect. I think she went to Europe 3 times with my parents, guess how many times I went with them? NONE. She got all her car/insurance/housing paid for even after she was married. Guess when I got cut off? The night I got engaged. Seriously! The next day at Christmas at least 7 times I opened a gift of some cute clothing item, and my Mother would gasp apologetically and say "oh, that is actually for Megan" I nearly cried, but my new fiancée was there and I didn't want him to think I was petty. She was and is SPOILED!
But it is not her fault, and we all love and adore her. Okay, enough of my rant. I made this little journal for Megan's birthday. I used Steam a Seam interfacing, and did free motion quilting. I know I need practice, but check out how good the stitching is around the dog?
Anyhow, since it is Megan's birthday, I thought I would give you all a gift. I did a rough drawing here of the girl. Sorry she is a bit nerdy and the file is just a sketch, but you just need the outline for her shapes. I sent Megan the file of the nerdy girl and she busted a gut! She said I would be ruining my street cred if I let you all see her...oh well, she is good for a laugh at the very least. The journal cover tutorial is here on bloom.
And if you wish Megan Happy Birthday in the comments and let me know which dog you want me to fussy cut for you and why; I will cut 3 dogs for 3 of you. Whoever makes me laugh or cry the most about the dog of their choice will win. I did a dalmatian for Megan because we had 3 dalmatians growing up. Cookie, Penny and Trixie. We loved them!
