First up the winner of the ebook is Rolanda:
I really admire anyone that can thread paint. The time I tried it, it was horrible. I had to toss it and didn't start over. Maybe I need better instructions?
I have been
Thankfully I think I am on the downhill run now.
Take a look at this luscious fabric by Riley Blake Fabrics! It is called 'Serenata'. LOVE this company to bits. Seriously they are the best! This is not quite the whole collection. There are a few fat quarters missing from it, for a secret mission.
In the meantime, I got this fantastic iron on book from my dear friend RT. I just had to try it out. I have a plain grey pair of capris. I was contemplating putting jumbo ric rac on the bottom, but wondered if that was bordering on 'crafty crazy' and not just crafty? Instead I tried one of the iron on patterns on the cuff of the capris.
What do you think? Cute? Crazy? Quilters will run in the other direction?
I have a bucket list. Most of it is quilt related. Okay, all of it is. I have been getting it done, slowly but surely. Last year I stroked a big one off-going to a Quilt Market. That still seems surreal to me. Another one, as you probably know is getting a quilt accepted into the IQA Houston show. About as many times as I have entered Houston, I have sent submissions into Quilting Arts magazine. I won't tell you how many submissions I have sent, because you might tell me to give up. Anyway, this is the second time this has happened to me. I send in a submission, tell them why I like their magazine, and bam..... the next magazine has my quote in it. See the middle column below, that says 'I am a 3D art quilter'....yep, that's me.
I refuse to tell myself that this is as close to getting published in this magazine as I am going to get. I wonder if after so many submission, you get a pity acceptance? Probably not, but one can hope=)
