progress delayed

my plan for the day yesterday included some time at the sewing machine to finish up the cushion cover I had started -- it just didn't come together however because I discovered that my first plan for the attaching straps wouldn't work 

back to the drawing board for plan B later today

so I worked on other things

like this for instance 

the bead embroidery is done, the edging is done and the little gears have been installed in the openings 

still need to do the "chain" at the back and the clasp and the fringe 

{sigh} are we DONE yet?

the next version of the peacock drawing 

I like this one even better than the first one

now there are decisions to be made about size and background 

I'm looking forward to getting into this one  

and then there is this 

 I've been working on this for a while as part of my visioning project 

the purpose of this exercise had to do with using contrast 

it was going to be three pieces, but I'm sensing it is morphing into one big piece 

lots to do once I get through the laundry and the errands today!!

I like the new peacock the best, myself. (I wish I could draw like that.)
