Pillows and my Favorite Things

I hope everyone has had a great weekend.  Me and my daughter went to a few flea markets this weekend.  Despite my bad knee I enjoyed it.  We went to 3 flea markets and had a lot of stops and sit downs.  It was very hot.  Got a few nice things, saw a bunch of cool things.  One of the things we saw were these little pigs; not pot belly pigs but another kind.  They only get to be about 30 pounds, they were so adorable!  Expensive, but adorable.  We also saw something called a sugar glider.  Oh my gosh it was soooo adorable, again it was expensive but so adorable.  I had never heard of a sugar glider but just adored it.  It's fir was so soft, like silk.  Check out what a sugar glider looks like. 


Isn't it adorable!  It is an adorable little marsupial. 

We also finished off the day eating at one of my new favorite places.  David's Burgers.  They form and make the burgers right in front of you and they cut the french fries from fresh potatoes as needed.  They also have free refills on the fries and drinks.

Now over at Every Inchie Monday the theme is Pillow.  So for my inchie I decided to make something that I remember from my childhood.  My parents had this old 70's couch, you know the lovely (ugly) green kind and they had these blue pillows with red trim.  Gotta love the 70's.  LOL


On this inchie I used 4 colors of delicas 2 opaque colors and 2 silver lined colors for the pillow.  

Also over at Two by Two by Tuesday the theme is Favorite Things.  This one was an easy thing for me to design.  There are many of favorite things for me.  But the top three favorite things are represented here.  

If you can't read it, my twinchie says GOD; with a gold cross through it, and has been a part of my life for the length of it.  Then there is my KIDS; with 2 little red-headed kids on it, and they have been the biggest part of my life.  And of course I couldn't forget BEADS; which has a string of beads running through it; and has been on the top of my mind for most of my life. 

This inchie used 8 colors of beads and seemed to take forever to bead up lol.  These twinchies are very different for me.  I have wrapped my head around inchies and love doing them; but these twinchies are a new mindset for me.  I also have been trying to catch up with the ones I missed so far this year and even turned one of the designs into a lighter cover.  I will post them later on as I get them done. 

Thank you so much for stopping by and checking in with me.  If you are liking the looks of my inchies and twinchies then don't just sit there, follow the links and join right in.  They is so much fun in just making a small piece of art for no other reason than to just create.  I really like the challenge of designing something just for fun and I always enjoy spending Sunday night beading.  So fly on over to EIM and 2x2xTuesday and check out all the other artwork over there. 

Have a blessed and creative week.

    1. Thanks Zoe, glad you liked them. I think if the sugar glider had not cost 150$ or wouldn't get eaten by the bitch cat I would have loved to have one lol

  3. Aha, the glitch is fixed & I can see everyone's photos including ALL of yours, that pillow must have been a bitch to plan in beading format!

    1. I think if you lived in the 70's it was mandatory to have an ugly green couch

  5. It would have been very difficult for me not to bring home one of those little critters. So cute! Both your inchie and twinchie are so brilliant. We didn't have a green couch though LOL!

  6. Your work is fantastic, the twinchie is wonderful, so much on such a small space. I can imagine the green sofa, another memory in beads.

  8. Freebird, Thank you so much for taking on the Twinchie challenge! I'm glad you are enjoying the little projects and your choice of "favorites" is perfect. Gotta love the 70s--my house is vintage harvest gold, all original appliances (who has a 42 year old fridge?). It's only 98 here today, a cooling trend! That sugar sure is sweet! Thanks for sharing your adventures. Have a brilliant day! c

    1. Thanks, I am enjoying the twitches. I am working on the ones I missed and one.of the patterns I liked so much I am making a lighter cover with the design. I think it is cool that you have appliances from the 70's.
