Meet Esmerelda

 Meet Esmerelda:
 She's been in my head for a year and now she's done!
 Close of up the hair.
 The pearls.
 The tail.
 The rest of the tail.
 Squiggly waves and body quilting.







The back, which as you can see is perfect for hiding stitches.  I think that was in my favor, because......


 I got a second place ribbon!

That is beautiful! Did you use a pattern or make it up. My daughter in law would love it!

She is absolutely amazing! I love the way you made the two colors work for her hair. The way she's posed creates so much emotion - makes you wonder at what she's thinking, so she's not just a flat piece of fabric.

Wow!
