November 29, 2005

My little Art Quilters group is having an ATC exchange on the first of December. My goal was to make lots of cards so that they would have a choice as to what they wanted to choose...I found that these little "works of art" are very hard to do. They are very small and in order to make them "SHINE", you need to go to extra lengths. I was amazed at how many beads they could absorb being as small as they were. Trying to put a binding on them by machine was impossible so I actually pulled out a needle and thread to accomplish that task. It was very labor intensive! I have now decided to make one card per person and let them fight it out! (Maybe I am getting ahead of myself, maybe they won't fight it out for my little art works, after all yesterday my art work was rejected!). But then on the other hand the meeting is being held at my house and I am serving lunch so they will be on their good supportive behavior...that's how quilt artists are, especially if they are hungry and you have chocolate!

Yum, I'll be there and I promise to behave! Can't wait to get my little pieces of art from everyone. Pam
