One of the things I love about Craftster are the swaps, and one of the things I love about the swaps is that I can make things I would never make for myself.  I made this beautiful lady for redstar13 in the OPS.  While she wouldn't exactly fit my decor, it was hard to let her go.  The more I worked on her, the more I loved her.  In addition to several embroidery stitches; I used fabric paint, crayon tinting, and of course the rosary.

That is fab. I wouldn't want to let her go either.

I really like the face of your lady ! It's not so easy to do so.
I understand why you can't let go... that's the reason I don't like swap very much !
