Crazy Quilt Peacock Purse - A Work In Progress

I've just been sitting here and stitching my crazy little head off!  I'm currently working on beading the lace applique piece on the left-hand side:

Crazy Quilt Peacock Purse

Once I have the applique beaded, I'll start stitching the peacock.  I've been wanting another peacock purse for myself but I think I'll put this one in the shop and do a pink peacock purse for myself.  I'll have to add it to the list as I sewed up a block yesterday with a Marie Antoinette theme and that one is definitely for me!

Speaking of my crazy quilt purses, I loaned this one to my sister:

Silhouette Lady Purse

I have a feeling I may never see it again!  Kathi just loves it and she has co-workers drooling all over it too!  LOL!!!  I'm really not a "red" person.  I much prefer pink and other pastel colors.  I know Kathi is enjoying it and that's what matters to me!

A couple of weeks ago, I shared a photo of the 1929 Ford Model A Tudor Sedan that Bubba has been working on for years!!  I asked him if he a photo from when we bought it.  This is what it looked like back then:

Model A In The Beginning

And then this is what it looks like now:

Model A 5

I'm so proud of him!  He really has stuck with it and little by little, he's getting it together.  It's been a rough road restoring this car.  But perseverance does pay off!  It's not done yet, but it gets closer by the day.

In other news, be sure to stop by tomorrow to meet my Guest Blogger!  She's an incredibly talented Crazy Quilter, she collects many of the same things that I do and she will share her passions here!

I will be hosting a guest blogger twice a month now.  I want to introduce my followers to some of my favorite bloggers and heaven knows, I have many!  There are so many talented ladies out there!  Just so many!  And I'm sure I've found a few that many of my readers have never met.

So please be sure to leave my guest a comment here and if you would be so kind, please hop over to her blog and leave another comment there.  And please let me know how you like this new feature on Kitty & Me Designs blog!!!

Hi Pam, I'm loving the stitches on your blue purse, and anticipating the peacock! I also love the red one, can see why you may never get it back.
The car turned out beautiful!!
Am looking forward to your guest crazy quilter, and love the idea!

That car is looking perfect - thank you for posting the 'before' photo because we can really see how much work your hubby has put into it. He has good reason to be proud!
Have to admit that I probably wouldn't give that purse back either! Looking forward to seeing who your guest blogger will be.

I can see the two of you driving down the McHenry roads in your refinished car. Maybe a parade or two. He is doing a great job. Of course I have to say the same about you and your work. Look forward to seeing who your guest blogger will be.

Hugs
