Me too I love to see the step by step progress, Terri.
Great art piece.
Sharon how is yours coming together?
Comment by Sharon on Saturday

Teri very nice progress, I so enjoy seeing hoe other artists work!

Comment by QuiltDragon on Saturday

Terri, great progress on your picture. Thanks for posting your pics and it'll be fun to see how she comes together.

Sandy, the new paint will look great, but what you have to do before is daunting. A few days away while the painters are there is a good idea. It sounds like Lucy is doing so well, getting very big and I'm sure she'll love running in her new yard.

Comment by Sandy B /AUS on Saturday

I agree Terri. It is looking very good - well done.

I started sorting and packing some of my things in the family room today - not moving - getting the interior of the house painted. The painters start 15 June with the daily living areas, then a week later the bedrooms. One room I have to sort first is where I sew, draw, paint and store my books and paper - oooh such a big job - do I really want to know how much I have collected?? LOL

Maybe we will go away for another few days?

The Brisbane trip was wonderful and Lucy is now close to 1m tall and size 10 shoes - 3ft in USA terms. Definitely going to have a tall teenager.

My DD is looking and sounding so much better now that the pregnancy has settled and they have shifted house. The scans of the baby at 20 weeks are amazing - life is like that - so precious and wonderful. The backyard is great - so much room for Lucy to run around in.

It looks like we will be spending Christmas up there and here we were thinking we would just be the 2 of us here in Canberra this year.

OOh crunches and dentures! - crunches and pork crackling and then cracked teeth is my fear. Yes it did happen once - a very expensive repair.

Take it easy BB - try remind your family your are not completely over your shingles yet. TLC for you.

Have made a slight change to the Lorikeet as the bright green was just a place holder, although the green does play a part. Now have to play with how I want the eyes and mouth to look and then think about the stitching, painting, thread paint aspect. Will do all of that before I add any borders, backing or quilting. Once all that is done, then I will do the final embellishing. Rather pleased with the way this is turning out.

Looking good, Terri. Thanks for showing your progress!

I am just glad that the crunch was truly the croutons and not the dentures breaking! 

Comment by Terri D. on Friday

Here's the other picture, it wouldn't let me put in both at once for some reason.

Comment by Terri D. on Friday

I'll give you a good chuckle about dentures. When we were living in Michigan while I still had upper and lower dentures, we went to a Bob Evans for lunch while on a road trip. We had gotten a salad with these "homemade" croutons on it. I had just bitten into one when the server who was 2 tables down turned around, looked at me and said, "don't tell me that was the crouton." I just looked at him kind of surprised and told him I "KNOW" you didn't hear that to which several people stood up around the restaurant and at the same time said, "we all did!" My face must have turned beet red. I mean when you have dentures things sound loud to you but I never thought others could hear. The server took my salad back to the kitchen where he proceeded to crush one on the counter and I couldn't believe I could hear it! I happened to get the last of those croutons and they couldn't explain why they were so crunchy. Needless to say they felt bad for me so my lunch was on the house.

Here is a little something that I'm working on. Still has a way to go, especially with the parrot, which is the bright green blob you see.

Speaking if dentures, when I was a teenager and working at a grocery store, I cleaned the registers and conveyor belts at the end of the day  I found someones upper plate- never could figure out  not how it happened but why no-one ever came in to claim it. After all  how could you not know you dropped it?

Comment by Ally Bryant on Thursday
Well I have had my chuckles for the day, must get down to my sewing room!
Will post later on the TP page what I have been up to.
Have a good day all.
