Hey Guys!!!  Grin

So I think I might have been crazy attempting this challenge with the house on the market, a two year old, a full time job and life....

Here it is!

I didn't get the full scale done that I was looking to do so what's a mama to do?! Change course! I first found the picture I wanted to use and slapped a grid on it. That took forever in itself. Then I quickly realized that was going to be a whole headache of a mess. Oh well I say.

I decided to try things a bit differently, and from the original step came up with this. Which was supposed to be appliqud to a tote bag for my mom for Christmas. It still will get done, just not in time for this challenge. Sorry Mom!

I was always going to do this bit, after much hemming and hawing over having to sort beads, I sunk right in. 4 - 9 hour days of work later they were all successfully sorted. We all know how that goes with a 2 year old on the loose... No matter how well I think I have hid things, she always gets into them. No matter, they were resorted.

Then comes the work on mama. Did I mention the house was for sale? In the midst of making mama someone decided they wanted to see the house. I am all for it, whatever gets it sold, but mama had to be put up. I had her outline done and had started filling her in when I had to put her up. My DH then decided that he had to put something away right on top of her.... Back to square one....

I'm not easily deterred though. And back to work I went. Mom now has a mama charger for her salad plate at dinner. It is wicked cute if I do say so myself, and will keep the horrible rings from condensation off of their antique cherry wood table. Smiley

Hope you enjoyed!
