(Carla Note: blog contest details are here.)
How are you today! Thought I would mention all the goodies which have arrived to my studio recently.
Inchies, Inchies and More Inchies!!– I am running an inchie exchange over on MQResource, a quilting site. What are inchies, you ask?? Just see my inchie tutorial to learn more! Anyway, the inchies are trickling in, here are the ones which have arrived so far:
Don’t they look lovely?? Terrific job by all the artists above!
Beaded Workspace– Next up relates to the freeform beaded necklace that I shared in my post yesterday. Quilter Karen A. asked me how do I keep the beads from going in all directions as I work with them? Here is a photo of my workspace that shows the piece of fleece/felt, the ceramic dish and other items:
You might be wondering why I have an antique key in the picture? I found it recently, so I’m planning to use it somehow. It is just sitting there for inspiration.
Another Mailbox Goodie– My sister, Yvette, sent me an adorable Life is Good t-shirt from the New England East Coast region:
I love that Lobster!! Thanks, Sis!
Don’t Forget! Before I go, I must remind you of my blog contest I am currently running until Sunday, August 17th, 2008 at noon:
The winner gets their choice of a lovely freeform crochet scarf, handmade by me! This is at least a $150.00 value (or was it $175?). I arrived at that price because that is how much that my friend and wearable artist Susan Italo sold it for when I let her wear one of my scarves at a quilt show. A merchant vendor saw Susan wearing it and decided she must own it!! Thanks, Susan, for your negotiating skills!
That’s all for today. Hope your day is creative! Hugs, Carla
It was my pleasure– especially the part about getting to wear the scarf!
Gee whiz Carla,
You are definately getting the big bucks for your talents! Oops, shouldn’t say that in a public forum…
Thanks for sharing how you work with those tiny beads! I think I will stick to fabric and knitting.
