This week has been one very busy one with getting quilts and trades done. I worked on 22 ATC's for a mass trade coming up on Sat. at Art-Is-You.
A mixed media retreat. I also have several bracelets made up and some other items I made earlier, so have about 50 all total.
I also made some in the form of tags to trade
In Addition to this, I also had some trades on the homefront. I had been working on an Alice in Wonderland trade group and made tags for the Knave of Hearts. I can hardly wait to see what I get back!
I love how sparkly they are even though the photo doesn't do it justice. Not shown is the back where I have the poem about the Knave of Hearts.
I also spent the earlier part of the week quilting a quilt that a bunch of us gals in a group did for a friend who was diagnosed with breast cancer. This is my block contribution.
This is the quilt I couldn't tell you about this past week until I sent it since it was to be a surprise. Needless to say she was!
All of the blocks were done by our online art group and it was amazing seeing our personalities showing through. You can see close ups of the rest of the blocks and quilt HERE. In addition to making her block, I machine quilted her quilt and I also had made her a doll that you can see more views in the album as well.
While I know she has a rough road ahead, It's a great comfort to her that she has so many of us that can reach out and help with the healing!
We Love you Dove! Many more cyber hugs and prayers going your way!
