    Cute, cute, cute. Practice drawing some faces on paper first. Usually I go for one thing, but wind up with another. ;-)

    Lovely! I agree with Dunster.....I am hopeless with faces, mine always look a bit demented.

    it was in miniature quilts magazine back in say...1999/2000! But I think they also published it in one of the book publications on Miniatures as well. Would have been that same time period. THey closed up in 2003 I believe so it would be prior to that!
