Progress report - Day 1

I guess I can't put this off any longer. It's time for my daily progress report
My additions since yesterday are
One of these (not entirely happy with it) I don't know what's all over it in the picture but I can't see it on the real thing.

3 of these (not entirely happy with these either)

You may think I didn't do too bad for just one day. If you knew the whole truth you would change your mind. I had all the flowers done and the cans covered, I just had to put them together.
After I got these done I did a little experiment and came up with this
The idea really came from Cheryl who did a black and a white scottie dog a while back.

So I'm blaming my progress, or lack there of on the grumpy mood that I put myself in today. Tomorrow morning Wade will go off to work, the house will be quiet and I'm going to get busy.

You are way to hard on yourself.

And that dog looks like your little one!

BeadedTail said...

I think you made great progress today! Of course I love the little Duke!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Ann, your problem is that you expect WAY too much of yourself. You have SO much talent... Just relax and enjoy it... IF it is a burden and you are never happy with what you do, this will not work for you... Happiness and enjoyment are much more important...

Love the little doggie.
Hugs,
Betsy

It's Duke, you made him!!!! And I love the top thing, is it a box? I would buy it, so pretty!!!!

Kloggers/Polly said...

I love the little duck with the bullrush ....

Do tell though, are the sunflowers resting in beads, if not, what magical method are you using?

By the time I scrolled down to the dog, I think I must have felt peckish for I kept thinking this would be wonderful made in rolled marzipan!

Just a little extra note for those of your readers in the UK - I actually found quilling materials in 'The Works' bookshop. (These, I believe are situated throughout Britain and so far are the only place that I have seen quilling material available for purchasing.)

Gads... is he ever CUTE! I mean that!

Reeni said...

These are all ADORABLE!!

Grace said...

I was trying to decide which I liked best - which was a silly thing to do - I like them ALL...

Donna said...

All of those look adorable! Hit the coffee tomorrow and get in overdrive, LOL!

Erika said...

I have to agree with Betsy. Have fun and let loose. I really like the top one--is it a can?
And your photos are so awesome I can see the magnets and cards (are you doing cards of your photos?) doing well.

And we all have those days where we just don't get it done. Thank goodness tomorrow is a new day!

Anny said...

Ahhh.. the lil white westie in the end is the best :) but the others are not too bad either. A well spent weekend i must say.

Philippa said...

That's a GREAT start Ann - and, believe me, you'll achieve wonders without hubby under your feet!

FishHawk said...

Have you considered having your quilled Scottie watering your quilled flowers? It might open up a new market for your products?

Duni said...

Ann, those flowers in the tins are ADORABLE!! These'll sell like hot cakes!

Sandra said...

they all look good to me. I think my favorite is the flowers in the cans. the dog looks like duke. you will do better today with your alone time. it is hard to do things when the men from mars are home. have fun and I agree you are to hard on yourself. we are all our own worse critics.

Dr Sonia S V said...

Ann the doggie is so beautiful . Dont let Duke get jealous and eat it!

Bossy Betty said...

You are doing great!!! No more negative talk, woman! (Aren't you REALLY glad you appointed me your motivator?)

Anne said...

I think they look gorgeous! And I absolutely love the paper Duke.

marie said...

My goodness - you are tough on yourself! I think these look great. Love the sunflowers especially. The paper Duke is adorable!!

Lindzena said...

Don't be so hard on yourself! I think all of those are adorable.

Catherine said...

Wishing you a beautiful August!

Sandee said...

Wade didn't take vacation too. Well perhaps that's a good thing.

I love all that you've done and I love the dog. That's way cool.

Have a terrific day and vacation. My best to Duke. :)

Donna said...

Love ALL of these!

tahtimbo said...

Please, don't be too hard on yourself (this coming from someone who does the same thing), I think they look fantastic!! I don't see anything wrong and I'm sure that those who will be buying them won't either. I would also include the scottie dog you made. Just put it out there for giggles...guess what? I bet someone would buy it.

Out on the prairie said...

Amazing work, I love the little duck on the pond.

DSS said...

OH. MY. HEAVENS! You've made a westie pup :) I adore it. Now have you got an Etsy shop or anything? Because I adore that magnet of Duke, AND that westie pup you've quilled. Hmmmm....I wish I was closer to this craft show of sorts you are going to.

And I know you have lots to do, but remember...this is also your vacation :) You can't work THAT hard!

Tammy said...

I love the duck in the pond. Everything is very nice.

Beebeebabs said...

These are sooooo sooooo cute. You did a great job on each one - love all of them tfs!!!

Cards by Cheryl said...

I love the bird on the water and the flowers in the pots but your Duke quilling is fantastic....glad I could inspire you.

Marg said...

Look another Duke. That is so cute. I really like the little bluebird too. At least he has a blue head. We think it all looks great. Take care.
