"To Margie from Asha" stitched by Margie

Having researched the drawing of faces and all the 'correct' proportions I chose instead, with Asha's permission, to copy this portrait of me from her book Margie's monster birthday in which a one eyed monster eats my birthday cake.  Being not much over 5' I do love my new long legs!
Machine appliqued with hand quilting and embroidery. The fabric on the face puckered up so I was able to iron out the wrinkles [no botox!] and give myself a nose.
Here is the original and a cushion cover I made for the artist:
