My fingers are bloody raw from working on the center of this flower! Ouch, if I had only placed it slightly to the left I wouldn't be sewing through that darn double seam pocket again!
I'm considering using applique to finish off the petals. I have some great fabrics that would be cool.
This lampshade needed to be sealed because it was a huge dust magnet. Instead of dust it now has a peacock feather stuck to it!

This storm blew in from no where today! I got brave and went out back to take pictures of the area they said a tornado was touching down in Lake Lotawana, MO. The wind chased me back inside to alert my husband who unfortunately was driving just south of that mess! He ducked under a bank drive thru to avoid hail damage on his brand new truck! Okay wait, I texted him first then went to take pictures. He said I should call next time...he was way too close for comfort and I showed him how to enable his weather alerts on his phone. Holy crap! He just had surgery after a traffic accident with a deer, that wreck was right by the freaking tornado today. I think he should find another way in and out of town.
And the tornado! It was a small one but did some dock damage, flipped some pontoons and a lot of trees down on houses. These pictures were taken about 8 miles south of the storm.

Having fun coloring in my homemade coloring book. Using markers and gel pens so far. The doodle on upper right is a sticky note I use as my scratch pad to keep my pens fresh.
So glad to have saved my odd sheets of paper. That fuchsia on the lower right was just a doodle while on the phone or distracted. Sorry about the bad pictures, used my phone and not a good angle.
Check out these lips I found at the thrift store for my gelli plate!

Had some fun with the leftover paint and did a couple of pours on some 78 records. I ruined the pretty one! Bad art week, everything I touched turned out shitty if not shitty then I ruined it somehow in the process.

Miss Lucy gave us a big scare this week, she had to go in for grooming and when we got there she started bleeding! We both panicked and the vet did about $400 bucks worth of tests. Yikes, so worried and then I remembered that we had started a new flea treatment just five days ago. FRONTLINE GOLD, that shit is going in the trash. The vet said it was a 1 in 20,000 side effect but actually make that 2 in 20,000 because I said something to John about Riki's urine looking dark the other DAY!
If anyone has had a similar experience I really would like to hear about it and what you use for flea control. Thanks ladies.
She is feeling better today but really tired and on antibiotics for the next two weeks. Riki is not much better because he went in today and had his teeth cleaned, one removed and then his grooming! Poor babies should be all set for summer.
Miss Queenie likes my chair, she is like Princess and the Pea. I bought outdoor cushions last week and piled them in the living room before taking them outside. She climbed that pile and claimed them as hers.
She does have great taste in men because she passed up about 50 guys and laid right on my husbands boot that day. He has loved her from that moment on.
Here she is just one short year ago, no telling how long she had been living under the bridge on the Kaw River in KC KS. Poor baby was gray and had huge mouse sized mattes in her hair.
We hope she gets to enjoy all the beds in the house for a very long time. Love her so much!
