Altered Key Holder

So I didn't make time to work on a painting...well, not really time so much as the heat.  If I were to paint I'd have to take it to the garage...since it's the 27th day of over 100 degree heat...let's just say I would rather keep it small scale and indoors.  A dear friend gave me a key holder and since my husband HATES the things I collect, I decided to make it into an altered box.  I got rid of a lot of odds and ends...though, I hate to say, it's made me want to hit the flea markets hard core.  I want to make more.  This may or may not be a good thing.

My Little Pony.

My nephew is getting into photography, so I thought I'd drive him around and shoot some photos.  We found this little guy.  I wanted to pick him up and hug him like a teddy bear.

I also wanted to take the donkey home with me.  He wouldn't wear his seat belt so he had to stay.  So disappointed.

Silly Abbey!

We made mustache's at the Crafting From The Collection @ the Amon Carter the other night.  I put it to good use.

Bad Stella!

Burning the Midnight Oil...and then some.

I bought fabric for my husbands quilt two or three months ago, ironed and cut a few pieces and then set them aside.  I'd been meaning to get back to working on it but work kept me way occupied and exhausted, by the time I got home I just wanted to laze around and watch TV.  The other night I found them, started cutting more fabric, then sewed a few pieces.  By midnight I found myself totally focused on this silly thing and couldn't stop.  I finally finished the quilt top by 10am.

So here's the quilt, and Stella giving me the stink eye for keeping her up all night long. I predict another 2 to 3 months to finish since I've run out of fabric.
