We had a great quilt show but it wiped me out! It didn’t help that my cat was punishing me with 2am and 3am wake-up calls for not being around all week!
Many quilts sold, as well as, one pillow and a few bags of vintage patchwork blocks. The quilts that hung in the show were amazing and so creative and inspiring.
I never have time to take photos but I did snap a quick one of this beauty – Tree of Life, made by my friend Sue Atlas. It earned a 2nd place (not sure the category); the winners will be on the SDQS website in the near future. Sue’s quilt also won 1st place at AQS.
Now I’m pushing a deadline. Here are some parts of a mixed media piece I’m working on. The fingers here are clay but because of the weight I’m going to try and recreate them in paper clay. Also, I painted one eyeball on silk (wrapped around a round rock) but then figured they needed to be painted on a flat surface, so I’ll be painting two new ones.
With every new part for this project my family tells me – “That’s creepy.” But in the end I hope it won’t be too creepy! More to come.
Thanks for stopping by!
