My aunt, uncle and my father have all passed but these two images bring back many memories of them all - one was the dancing. All of us cousins learned to dance with our parents - on the weekends at the local Moose Club where our fathers served as president. We learned the waltz, the polka, the shotishe, the two-step, the hootchy kootchy - yes that is a dance! :<) All of the classic ballroom dances and then some! Our parents were all beautiful dancers and we started young - standing on their feet while they did the steps across the dance floor.
Everything on the two images is paper pieced with the exception of the skin and hair. I used two patterned papers and even the small hearts on her skirt and the barrett in her hair are pieced. I am entering this card in the current challenge on Mo Manning's Challenge Blog at http://mosdigitalchallenge.blogspot.com/ where the theme is "Love is All Around" - and Oskar & Mummu and/or Hank & Sally share an abundance! When they dance together they are in a magic world of their own.
