A lovely way to end "end-of-month-hell".
Sara had told about her friend Pat. Pat is a crazy quilter...a most incredible artist and one of her creations has been selected as a contestant in the $100,000 Quilting Challenge. Can you imagine being that good?!?!?!? So of course I had to go see...and oh my..wondrous things and links and all that fun.
So I wrote and said how much I loved her work, probably asked questions yadda yadda and we have had a bit of a correspondence. I mentioned that I had found a site in Australia where you could order little packets of fabrics. No fine fabrics in my stash to play with. Then, out of the blue, I received an email from her asking me to name 3 favorite colors. LOL I couldn't decide so I wrote some colors on slips of paper and drew 3 and the choice was warm brown, terra cotta and teal. Ohhh I'm glad I didn't draw orange and black or something. She said she would send me a packet of bits and pieces so I could try this myself.
It arrived today. Oh my gosh, there are the most amazing fabrics, silks and embellished fabrics and velvets and ribbons and beads and maybe the most amazing thing...pictures on silk! I don't know how they got there LOL.
I will probably wear them out just fondling them before I ever get up enough nerve to actually cut something. I did get a book at the library. Ugly book but a lot of information. I can't believe I am so lucky.
Oh...and I won something this week too! More about that in another post. And no, it wasn't Publishers Clearing House *G*
