Fantastic Show!

Southern Highland Guild Show is done and successful! What a fun (and tiring) event. Lots of people and energy. The artwork/crafts at the show were just amazing. Could not have done it without my hubby's help! He does all the stuff I don't like to do as in lighting and lifting.

Would of course change some things next year, absolutely need a rug on that bare concrete but all in all, the experience was a very positive one and didn't have to bring home too much inventory.

Above is the new owner of "Not your Mother's Housecoat". What a delightful lady and she looks fabulous in her new apparel!

Peace and Liberty

I am finishing up different projects for the show in Ashville, This is 'Peace and Liberty'. The main image reminds me for some reason of the Statue of Liberty and the doves of course are a universal symbol for peace. I am now satisfied with this art quilt and hope that it speaks to someone at the show.

Runaway Chairs

This is a little quilt I made for "Another Little Quilt Swap" online. It's title is "Runaway Chairs" and it is only 19.5x20.5 inches. It is done with a raw edge applique technique out of thin strips of leftover fabric.

I thought it came out rather cute and am anxious to see the quilt that I will receive for it in the trade. It is so much fun to swap and this swap is very international. So who knows where it will end up? It will be fun to find out.

There is less than two weeks until the Southern Highland Guild Show, so most of my energies are presently directed at that. After the show, I will be able to do more artsy work and life will be grand. If you by chance come to the show be sure to stop and say 'hey'.
