We thought of doing a Rain Dance but just going to deep water the trees. Now we found this little ring that attaches to the water hose and waters like 12 inches deep to the trees. The underground water system just does not water deep so we think SAVE THE TREES. Now Bermuda grass just keeps ticking like a Timex watch. Just can't kill it even it the grass is brown it is just waiting to spring alive. We are fortunate to have a water well but still would water the trees deep even if we didn't. In West Texas Trees are far and few between and what we plant is what we have.
I thought in celebration I would go ahead and post Sparkle. A sweet little faerie I drew and painted a while back. I did make a ciggie out of her and thought of doing softer colors but these colors just screamed at me. I have a little 9 drawer cabinet we bought at Hobby Lobby and painted it RED of course. It proudly holds my colors for CQ and my threads. So I pull out each color and see who yells at me.
Meet Sparkle, I had to give her a head band with sparkles in it. The upper right is a fabulous button that I was told about on FB and the lower button is a depression glass I think copy. Not sure haven't tried to break it to see if plastic or glass. The rest just kind of grew to where it wants to be. I never plan a thing with these little gals and I just start and see where things want to go. Guess that is called creating. This is for CQJP 2014. Just a self motivated project. I put these in a book and one did find it's way to the Princess Giget in Hawaii. Now the reddish color is more magenta, sometimes it and purple photograph different. LOL I am to lazy to set up lights to take it's pic so you get the picture I bet.
Sparkle is one of my Essence faeries, I took her essence from a dear friends granddaughter. But added bangs and the hair color is definitely not hers. Just wanted a little look of her granddaughter.
I have 4 more blocks ready to embellish. Baseball season is fixin to start and I have to be ready to have some busy work to do while we watch them. You know there is down time with Baseball.
Thanks for looking and coming to my world of Crazy Quilt to see what is going on today.
