I'm not sure if this was Elizabeth (my grandmother) or her one of her sisters Kitty or Mary. Hard to tell without a smile to see their teeth. Anyway it is a very sweet photo. I love the lace on the dress. It is the most fun to stitch. I haven't ventured onto the face yet. The background should be fun to work on.

The Last Supper has been put aside for some contemplation. It maybe my QSDS piece since I will have a week of uninterrupted time.

So after some contemplation the background became a batik that will be embellished with sequins and stars. The floor is a workmanlike denim. The food will be fast food. Since I plan to title this 21st Century Last Supper and Jesus was a working man (carpenter by trade and the apostles fisherman and such) if they lived now and gathered they would be munching hamburgers, fries and pepsi's. The message would be the same though.
