The Strutting Peacock

June!!!!!! Already half of the year has flown by.  I hope y'all are creating and doing art in some form or fashion.  Gardening and cooking is art also so not to slight that medium either. 

I have finished this square for CQJP13 but just had to share it with you.  Instead of a ciggie I used this peacock I made first.  Then I thought oh my the rest of the block will have to shine to go with the peacock.  I tried to hold down the beads and embellies as not to outshine the birdie.  It is 9x9 from edge to edge and what maybe a ton of beads?  It was hard not to put more. 

The shine of the sequins almost gets us and I didn't do much to the body it looked ugly so just used a pen .  I did do his wings though.  It was fun and the button area was just nude without beads.
I just cannot get enough of CQing that is just simple as that.  Gets in your blood doesn't it? 
There you go what is going on in my world today.
