Works in Progress or what am I going to be?

You have to remember I create these while Baseball and now action shows are on. Lots of action the better in my book, no girly shows for me. : )  So sometimes I do get carried away but after learning this wonderful art form I think there is no such thing as to much.   While in my art room  and playing with my "messy" work I am thinking I can be doing CQ so it just goes hand in hand with me.  I have my sewing machine all set up in my art room and can just play with either media.  

This sweet purse is trying to decide if it wants a handle and fringe or what is wants to be when it grows up to be a purse. Of course I love these colors and the little critters that we can put on them.  I am thinking some fringe will give it a tad more bling.   Love that word.  BLING 


The 75% finished pillow, I branched out and did different colors than I usually work with for my personal use. I don't have a clue what I am going to do with it, finish it and put up in a box  or sell it? I did have to challenge myself though and work with these soft and yummy colors.  Now Pat did say that it is hard to work in colors you don't normally use, I think she said that it is what my ears heard anyway.  Do your ears always listen to what is being said or do they interpret what you want them to hear?   I think sometimes mine do. 

Had to show some of the "critter's " on here a little closer. Now my spider almost looks like it could be something giant and growing but nope just some little beads and thread. I do love putting these little additions on the CQ work.  I think the hardest thing is to know when to stop or just keep going until it weighs 100 pounds.  Now if you have read my other blog at anytime you know sometimes I do get carried away with things like the little spider growing and taking over the world just little things like that.  Sorry my fingers just get carried away sometimes.  

Now some little love birds were added, so sweet I did add some beads on their neck and thought better about putting red beadie eyes on them. They do have mean looking eyes and I don't know why unless they are always on the hunt for food and predators.

NEXT PLEASE , like the CQ works of art are actually standing in line wanting to be talked about. 

Now this next pillow is in sections, don't have a clue what happened to the whole pic and thought maybe with Christopher's lips perhaps?  This I am referring to a sketch or part of a sketch I did of Christopher Lambert.  His lips have disappeared also but actually I have erased them many times trying to get right.   Maybe like the dish ran away with the spoon in the Nursery Rhyme?   The lips and the pillow pic are off having a great time.   Told ya I do get carried away sometime.

There you go my CQ work for a few days.   I am trying my hardest not to get burned out and spend every second on it so I will get burned out.  I do love it and thanks for stopping by and seeing what is going on in the CQP world.   I know some of the other authors have been creating also.

The Start of Something Pretty

I just couldn't stand it, I had to show you what I am working on.   Well some of what I am working on at the moment.    Now that baseball is over I just Crazy Quilt and sketch at night while watching our TV shows, hubby and I.

I had made one fantabulous pillow, in my opinion for our bed.  So I was thinking our little love seat in our bedroom is drab so why not spiffy it up with a go with pillow?  I am fixin to start doing the fun fun part----BEADS-  but had to show one or two parts  of it. 

Don't know if you remember about the jackpost estate sales we went to hear a while back, where I found the beautiful earrings for $2.   I had to have a long talk with myself and say ~ Annette you promised the daughters of the lady you purchased the earrings from that you would make something pretty using them.  So I finally gave in to my promise and added it here to the hat of the ciggie on my pillow.

So here we go, the pin I thought makes a wonderful addition to my victorian gal.  I know those hats were probably heavy any way so might as well add some more BLING !!!  I am not through adding goodies to her or the pillow, oh no the pillow needs to weigh what 100 pounds before I  finish one.   I know I get carried away with the stuff but it is just so pretty.

Now also remembering back when Hubby found a beaded dress for $5 at another estate sale that same day, I thought about selling it on ebay or some such place and thought no I want to use it and every bit of it.  So I cut, oh I did hate to do it, but the dress  was a size nothing and I knew I would never need it so my pillow is now sporting some pearls and pretty from the dress.  I had promised the dress that I would make it happy.

Here you go part of a sleeve.  Already beaded and sequined, I think it goes perfect with my pillow and have given it a good home. 

I have another pillow I just started for grandaughter, she changes colors so often but I went ahead and started one for her, but you can see it later.  I have sewn the lace on it and fixing to get it to the point of where this one is and then I can BEAD to my hearts content.

There you go just couldn't wait to show yall what is going on in my world this week. 

Thanks for stopping by and seeing what is going on in my world.

CQ for a sweet 9 year old

I made this little purse for a special 9 year old.  A granddaughter of a very dear friend.  The little girl is artsy, very artsy so I tried to make this young and artsy for her.  the fringe was to big so I just got my handy dandy sissors and worked the balls over.  I looped some ribbon over and found a big yellow orange button to fasten it all together in case she has some treasures in it and doens't want them to spill out.

thanks for looking and off to go do something productive.   Well this morning I did sew up a director' chair back and bottome but that was not a big project at all.

So what else will the day bring?  I don't have a clue but will enjoy whatever comes along.

There you go this is what is happening in  my world today.  Thanks for stopping by.

Yea my Purse if Finished !!!!

You know, I wonder if y'all are like I am?   When I make something for myself I always put it on the back burner and then one day wake up and think-----why don't you finish something for yourself?    So Mz. Adventure here did it.   I finished the purse I was making for myself.  I started it forever ago and now I am actually with a purse.  I usually don't carry very much of a purse but here I go with Mz. Bling herself.     I put close ups on my other blog but had to post the beauty here.   I am so in love with the form of art and just can't get enough of it.  I noticed some of y'all are doing like squares and to make a coverlet or throw, I am thinking I want to try this next year and spread my wings even further in CQ. 

Thanks for looking and stopping by to see what is going on in my world today.
