Round Robin Collage Comes Home

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2007

First, a Wednesday weigh-in report. I was only down .2 of a pound at WW, but I know I have lost more than that in the past week. Our leader calls it the Oregon Hibernation syndrome. Most of us were up or had lost very little. We were wearing warmer clothes which do weigh more. At least I was down!!

In July 2006, I joined a group of artists from the Quilt Art list to participate in a round robin collage. There were 11 of us. I sent off this piece of water color paper with my hand dyed silk fabric fused t the surface.

I periodically got a peek of a photo on our Yahoo site, but couldn’t get a real sense of what had happened to it. Today, it finally came home and it is a sight to behold. It is embellished with all sorts of lovely things. I can still see my fabric shining through the background. I have enjoyed just sitting and staring at all of the goodies. The last person to work on it was Frances Alford and some of you on the QA list or readers of Quilting Arts, might be familiar with her work. I think she spent quite a bit of time making this the beauty that it is.

Here are some close-ups.

Now, I have to figure out how to frame and hang this.

In the box was another member’s piece that I need to work on and send on its way so that she will finally have hers to enjoy.
