...and a New Finish!


I took a day off from other responsibilities like house cleaning and laundry and the like. I spent almost the entire afternoon and evening finishing The Gymnast for my granddaughter. As I said in my last post, I altered the colors to reflect the color of her competition leotard and her hair color. The colors don't really show up that well, but her hair is red, and her leotard is stitched in Kreinik braid because the one she wore this year was all glitzy and sparkly!
I also misnamed the apparatus; it is not a "bar", but the Beam.
Now back to my SAL's.
Happy Holidays all......Grandma

I am sure your granddaughter will love this. So nice to have it personalised. Alla Turca looks good, I am sure you should be able to adapt the next section if necessary.
