Collage Mania II

Well I finished my entry for Collage Mania II for the Fiber for a Cause group. Check the link out. I think it turned out pretty cool looking. Previews start the end of April and selling starts early May. Early previews are $80 and sale day is $40. Seems like a great deal for some great art. Many well-established artists are in the show. I think I'll probably bid on a few myself.

While stuck in a snow storm

Well, last weekend was something else. Ohio got dumpped on with over 12 inches of snow in about 36 hours. Well that didn't bother me. I was at a retreat, sewing machines were humming, food was plentiful, laughter was heard often ...we were just having a good time. Decided to start the weekend off with a day of quilting for others. Lady in out guild is sending baby dolls and mini quilts to match to a church in Latin America . I think they turned out cute. dress, slip, diapper, and quilt to match.

Since the pictures were taken, I've added faces and hair will come latter. The bag pictures was made for my secret sis at retreat. I think it turned out pretty good and here my husband thought it was too much. My sis really liked it.

I also got all the arcs done for my Indian Orange Peel quilt and have started on the boarder pieces. Yeah.

been busy

I got the next rounf robing finished and sent off. Grethcen says she really likes it. I used paint sticks for the leave stencil and gold, bronze and other metalics on top of the leaves to have it blend with some other metalics that were already there.
