My quilting bee is doing a project where we draw out of a paper bag, a subject, a color palette, and a size for fun. This one is bottles, cool colors, and only 6"x12". It was really fun to do and since it isn't very big it wasn't too intimidating! Tomorrow I get to see what everyone else came up with. These are 'play' and I really enjoy the challenge....and I get to try out different techniques, so it is allll good.

This has to do with a challenge of "Monograms". Started to think about it and I realized I have had four monograms in my life! Which one is me? At first I was leaning towards my maiden name intitials but then I realized that I am a product of all the initials I have worn in my life. Hence this project. Each row of initials is composed of the years that I carried them. The pink hand embroidered areas say, I Do, I Do Not, Who Am I, No No No, Do Do Do, etc....This possibly suggests that I am conflicted about relationships. Just a guess!!!!
Not quite done yet but soon. Have some embellishing to do and don't know what else yet.
The title of the piece is "A Lifetime of Monograms, A Cinderella Story?"
The base of what it is really about (I think) is how different our lives turn out than what we expected....
I think too much....
