Having fun with "Bottles"


My quilting bee is doing a project where we  draw out of a paper bag, a subject, a color palette, and a size for fun.  This one is bottles, cool colors, and only 6"x12".  It was really  fun to do and since it isn't very big it wasn't too intimidating!  Tomorrow I get to see what everyone else came up with.  These are 'play' and I really enjoy the challenge....and I get to try out different techniques, so it is allll good.

next project on the way....

This has to do with a challenge of "Monograms".  Started to think about it and I realized I have had four monograms in my life!  Which one is me?  At first I was leaning towards my maiden name intitials but then I realized that I am a product of all the initials I have worn in my life.  Hence this project. Each row of initials is composed of the years that I carried them.  The pink hand embroidered areas say, I Do, I Do Not, Who Am I, No No No, Do Do Do, etc....This possibly suggests that I am conflicted about relationships.  Just a guess!!!!
 Not quite done yet but soon.  Have some embellishing to do and don't know what else yet.
The title of the piece is "A Lifetime of Monograms, A Cinderella Story?"
The base of what it is really about (I think) is how different our lives turn out than what we expected....
I think too much....
