Playing a little catch-up… First, a peek at that monster sewing project I mentioned. It involved seventeen quilts. In ten days. Start to finish. And if that weren’t challenge enough, the fabrics were a wonderful mish-mash of randomness. Seventeen women chose a fabric, not knowing what any of the others had chosen. These fabrics were then assembled, each quilt different and unique, to symbolize what a strong sisterhood we make despite our differences.
Now that the project is complete I can forget about the agony of this challenge and instead focus on the powerful and amazing result — and it was indeed powerful and amazing. When I first glimpsed that stack of fabrics I was a little nervous, wondering what on earth I could do with them that might resemble harmony. But somehow, the pieces came together like magic, bit by little bit, one alongside another, until they sang a perfect song of balance in a way I never thought could be. I don’t have a slew of super-awesome photos like the project deserves because it was dreary and rained buckets every single day in May here, and they were gone before the sun had a chance to shine, but still, it was extraordinary and inspiring. Once they were finished. Whew!
Second, let’s talk winners, because I never posted them for the post art giveaway. Tell me you love me anyway. (I will hold giveaways and you won’t mind *too* much when I am slow to post the winners. That is our deal, m’kay?) Post mail packages have been sent to:
Alecia who says:
“These are TOO good.”
Karina who says:
“These are just amazing – so colorful – they just make me happy. That’s one fancy postcard back – love it. Would be thrilled to have some of these beauties (just completed a photo postcard swap – so fun to give and share).”
And finally, a few things from around the web.
I’m dying to get a good look at this book.
And if I could find money to spend I would spend it here.
