Kiss on the Half Shell


The future-in-laws are over this weekend and it's turned into one of those "let's sit around and watch racing all weekend" kind of things.   I'd like "equal time" at some point and have a Jane Austen movie marathon, but I don't think that's likely to happen LOL

Anyway.   I opted to shamelessly indulge myself in a stitching marathon instead.  The object of my affection? 


I think I've done about 25-30 hours over the last couple days, and the long weekend isn't over yet.  Mwahahahaha!

With the head tilt and the flowing hair (and her current lack of clothing) she totally reminds me of classic "Venus on the Half Shell" pose...aka Boticelli's The Birth of Venus.  Right, I know the head tilt is the opposite way but without checking the original artwork, you don't really remember that.

Anyway....another day of stitching today!  I want to finish off the sky and get started on some of the flowers or her dress.
