Swanee, how I love ya, how I love ya...

Yes, my dear old Swanee is now complete with wings!

She's become known as Swanee in our house - Al Jolson style! We just sing the one word, as in: "How's the Swanee coming along?" or "I'm going to do more on the Swanee today"! She measures approximately 7 1/2 inches high, 6 1/2 inches wide and 15 inches in length.

In case you missed it in the last post (which was quite long) I completed the portrait of my Mammy as a young girl as well!

Thank you Queeny! Yes I am, but I try not to get too excited because I know anything can happen in the kiln!

I hope we get to skype soon!

Hey Linda,
I loooovvvvveeee Swanee. She is sublime. And you did such a great job on her. she will be fine in the kiln don't you worry. I have never had any problems with coil built sculpture and I'll bet you won't either because she is so well made.

Thank you Leanne! I'm glad you like her! I'm really proud of this piece so it's nice to get the thumbs up from someone who knows what is involved. :)
