Sorry gang - I spent all day yesterday shopping with my granddaughter for goodies for her sorority house room - it was so much fun to be able to spend a day and a half with her! So I never once thought about drawing for the giveaway last night. But today that wonderful generator has, for the second week in a row, chosen #3 so I'll be emailing you today for your mailing address. Congratulations!
A little bit of this and a little bit of that - bits of things that feed my soul went into this altered art piece. For the background, a piece of wet-felted wool in a rusty red color. Then a little texture with linen thread stitch stripes. All manner of goodies then had to be sewn on - a vintage picture of women friends who look like they were having a really good time; a quilted cotton cloth tag (an extra I had from a class) topped with a wool flower and two very old hook-and-eyes; a piece of Dupioni silk outlined with wool roving and topped with a teeny wood bird and a very interesting metal thingamaboby - not a key but must have turned or opened something or other LOL; then a different color Dupioni silk that had been felted right into the wool, outlined with tiny rusty bells and topped with a cloth patch that says Oh Happy Day!, and a glass pendant. And of course some wood beads hanging from the bottom to give it more interest. All of this wired to a crape myrtle stick with copper wire. It's about 12" X 12".
Leave a message and on Saturday evening, August 20th, I'll choose a winner. Good luck!
