Working away!

Finishing up my Apache Gold Iris and still thinking about my Water Lily. Strolled around in my garden with a friend yesterday :) That was fun as I usually do this alone. Lots of huge plants this year and my peonies are actually budding. I have never seen them flower since my Mom gave them to me years ago, but kept trying. (Maybe that's why... I should stop moving them!) They are in the best place now and will stay there.

Sliced my index finger last night doing dishes..............makes me wonder if I should do dishes anymore. Throwing them out is not an option, so I guess if I want clean ones then.....

I am attempting to clean my studio room this morning before my MIL comes over :)

Photos are a tad dark and slightly blurry - sorry about that, but it was early when I took them :)

Shoes and jewelry - not fabric

I feel like I ended up with the BEST deal on shoes for the wedding. Got a pair of Bruno Magli (leather, hand made in Italy) off of EBay. (got this idea from Melody Johnson) This type of shoe typically goes for $250 - $300 a pair. Got mine for $35 bucks! Perfect condition, never worn and come in their own separate bags. For someone who doesn't wear heels, these are perfect, low heel and in my skin color to boot. Ok, enough crowing :)

I went to a friends' Open Studio yesterday and got a neat-o pair of earrings and ordered a bracelet too. It was a fun time and then the pollen came out and I went in. That's it for now.

And here it is!

So yesterday I showed a photo of the flower I am working on and here it is. It is not embroidered or quilted yet, but I like the progress so far.
I made the background at a friends house with the Gelli plate - I like the contrast with the flower.
Working on a water lily at the same time. All the work I am doing right now is fairly small - why? Just because.
