  1. What a wonderful face Miss Amelia! I particularly like how you cut out the mouth and eyes and made such shapely lip and eyelashes! 🙂 Reminds of that Sesame Street segment where the orange was decorated with a rubber band, and mop and other forgotten things and then rolled on stage to sing opera!
