Here is "Photo Booth: Sisters and Friends" and "Vulcan."
This is "Happy Feet."
I took about 30 quilts. The reception is in a few days. The gallery staff seemed confident that they will sell some. That would make me so happy!
I have to admit, it's a relief to have this done! There were so many little last minute details to take care of, but it's all out of my hands now. This afternoon I went upstairs to my studio and actually worked on the portrait quilt - the one made of strips of fabric. It felt so good to be doing something besides getting ready for the show.
Then I took a break and trimmed selvages from the pile a friend gave me. It was wonderfully mindless, just what I needed today.
I realized a few days ago that I've made it past the three month mark on my Green Quilting Journey: not buying any fabric, books, etc., for quilting for an entire year. I'm 25% there! And I haven't made a DENT in my stash.
I've realized that lately my temptation is not fabric, but things like dyes, cool gadgets and tools, and maybe a book or two. Thank goodness for the magazines I already subscribe to - they keep me inspired, along with other quilter's blogs.
Don't you think it's time for another giveaway? I do! Tune in tomorrow for the details.
