WIP or mabye a Sow's ear?

Abbreviations,  such funny little things and odd letters but we seem to know what they mean don't we?    Now the abbreviations on the texting world, some of those critters you have to really really really work to figure what they mean.  At least I have to.   Now I could get on my soap box about the texting and living with the phone in your hand but I promise I won't do that. 

WIP,   my work in progress on the crazy quilting.    When I piece a block or purse or whatever I am making together I think this is the homeliest thing in the whole world.    Now a saying is you can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear might be wrong on this art.   Because my little sow's ears evolve like crazy.   From a homely piece to a beautiful peacock.  

I am worried though because this piece, not finished, I am liking it.   See what I mean?  Is that a kiss of death for this little sow's ear?   I will let you be the judge of that.

 
So here it is the sow's ear evolving.   Probably the reason I like it at this point is maybe the bling already on it?   I don't know and I promise you right now it has 100 pounds of bling on it now after working on it last night.    You know looking at the shape, if I pointed it a tad it could look like a piggy's ear.  No that may be stretching it.  
 
Alright I have rambled enough.   I will post the finished project in a couple of days.   Putting the clasp on is the part I don't like but it is a present so have to get it done.
 
Thanks for stopping by and seeing what is going on in my world today.

    1. LOL maybe it is just a Texas pig's ear funny they have to go thru the ugly stages but always interesting how they come out. I never plan these at all just let them flow in the direction they want to go. Had to use one of my faeries. xoxo

  4. While I do believe you could make a pigs ear look fabulous, I also think your work, no matter the stages, always ends up beautiful! When you hit the ugly stage, keep going. The beauty is on its way!!!
