that went fast

the bead embroidery portion of this idea is all done 

in fact, I've already painted the back of these with fray check 

so when I head into the studio today, I need to go through the box of leather and upholstery velours to pick out the appropriate backing for these 

I'm pretty excited about how fast this came together --- now we'll see if I'm happy with the end result when I get it finished 
 remember this drawing? 

 this morning I blew it up 

that is I used one of my software programs to print the drawing out on multiple sheets so it is the size I need it to be -- or at least the size I think I want it to be -- 25 pages later of that 8.5 by 11 inch paper and I'll be spending some time with the tape and scissors later today

I need to do some experimenting with how I'm going to make the feathers that are the tail of this piece, so we'll see how this all goes
 last night's knitting time included finishing up this project 

now I'll be looking for a "squishy" envelope to mail it off to my daughter 

I'm hoping she'll get a photo or two when she puts this on the little dog that I can share with you later

I'm watching the weather today --- this evening is the local quilt guild meeting, and I'm hoping that it doesn't get to ugly for me to drive to it 

meantime, there are projects to do!
