I just realized that I'd never finished this blog. Emily was finished in time for her first show in 2007- though just barely dry. She has not gotten a first place, just second, but she had some stiff competition so I don't feel bad. Emily thinks it is a good likeness. . .
In looking over this blog I see that at one point I'd estimated that it may take 48 hours to complete. Ha! I think that ultimately it was closer to 100 hours. It was a great challenge though and learning experience, so I don't regret a minute of it.
Thanks for looking, and check out my other blogs from my web site:
