One Photo, One Story - #1 - "Uh-oh!" and Smalls SAL Check-In

Angela from Pretty Little Things in a Box invited me to take part in "One Photo, One Story". I'll post a photo each day for five days….maybe there's a story attached, maybe not.


"Uh-oh!!"
2.75 inches in diameter

This is a miniature portrait I painted of my daughter on porcelain. 

Here's the story:
My in-laws kept my daughter for a few days one summer. When I picked her up, Grandpa was so excited to show me what she'd learned. He said, "Sarah! Where did the indian shoot you?" (Westerns were very popular TV shows at the time). My sweet little girl pulled up her shirt, looked at her belly button and yelled "Uh-oh!!"

She was so proud of herself - it was one of those precious moments I kept seeing over and over in my mind, so I HAD to paint it. 

Tomorrow, another picture, another story.

Oh! And here's my Smalls SAL project for the month - it will go on a miniature needlepoint stand, once the stand is stained. I purchased the kit from Janet Granger. It's done on 40 Ct silk gauss and measures 1.5 inches square.

    I love your miniature design. I have a large dollhouse and can appreciate the tiny stitching! I purchased a kit with that silk gauze but have never stitched it, not sure I could even find it in my huge stash. :-)
