I did! And I did just that. Poor Amy! Poor Headless Amy!
You see...I never really liked the end result of my first attempt. I liked the idea....I thought she would need some help navigating and a compass would certainly do that. But for all my shopping I could not find the right size. And it all looked a little...contrived...aye yie yie...the worst criticism other than "it's cute". Those flowers had to go....
So one day I was walking by her and I said "That's it! YOUR head is TOO SMALL! It's coming off!" and I ripped it off.
This proportion is so much better, this timepiece found at an antique store. I love the patina of the brass. I did reuse the brass piece that says "Clover" I don't think you can see it but it is there. I had to do a little repair work to her neck and shoulders so I added some blackish paint.
The 7 Cent can opener and base are still way too cool.
and Headless Amy still has a zipper foot...I like her. I feel like her. Yes, done!
