I entered it on a whim at the last minute before the deadline, with the idea of "if you don't enter you can't get in"
I was stunned when the email arrived late in the afternoon telling me that it got in -- Wooo Hooo!
another big Wooo Hooo!
in addition to those big things to celebrate, there has continued to be creative work done here
after the first backing had to be discarded, I have now successfully backed and edged this piece so it is now ready for the fringe and the necklace work
my plan after that is to do some additional quilting and to add some color/shadows with inktense pencils
and some utilitarian sewing is taking place too -- now that the daybed is in place, I have no excuse not to make up those pillows I've been talking about and get that big bag of pillow filling out of my studio!
here are the first two -- there will probably be 4 or 5 more
