one of the quilt groups I belong to has issued a challenge that I'm actually going to participate in
the theme is FOUR
anything that comes in sets of four qualifies, and we are not restricted to size, materials, etc., etc.
I've been thinking about doing a series of the four seasons for a while, and this seems like a perfect excuse to get me moving
not to mention that aside from the Out of Africa pieces that are on going and the huge Trees project, I'm not right in the middle of any pressing deadlines and I think I can manage these between now and March, 2012
so this drawing is the skeleton of the four pieces which will be 6 inches wide and 16 inches tall
depending on how this all goes I may put them all in a frame together -- or not -- we'll see how that goes
today I hope to pull out fabrics to get started
started the bead work on this piece yesterday afternoon
the bezels went really quickly and now I'm working my way across the surface with the next ring around each piece of stone
moving right along
today's activities includes laundry and back to work on the charity auction -- only 12 days to go!
