It has been a long week or so for me!
I have finished Nolan's quilt. I need to get the labeling done, and deliver it. I am kind of waiting for him to arrive so I can get to visit him, and say hello early on! I love babies! They are so 'there' :)
I was able to step aside from my initial Gypsy Challenge piece, a large pentagon kaleidoscope sort of thing, and apply the 'leavings' from cutting out all the pieces of the 'mother' quilt! I have made a series of 12 ACEOs (Art Card Editions and Originals - http://www.aceomagazine.com/page1.html). They are all fused, using a technique idea I gleaned from a conversation with a friend! I have kept a photo journal of the process and plan to post one day when I finish the series! So presumptuous of me! :)
The first ACEO is finished and listed as an entry in the Etsy Earthpath Artisans Gypsy Challenge!

There are numerous wonderful works of art in a wide variety of mediums, truly look at them all! It will be your challenge to pick just one! :)
You can see them all here - http://www.flickr.com/groups/earthpathchallenge/pool/ - Enjoy!
I did not get my Hero's challenge done in June, but it is still very much on the front burner (of which I have more than your average stove!). I am focusing my July challenge energy on the EtsyFAST Team - Fiber Artist Street Team theme, De stashing! My goal is to complete as many Works in Progress to completed stage as possible Then I will select one to list as the challenge entry! FAST does not host voting as of yet, but it is fun to search the tags on Etsy and see all the awesome work! Try 'junechallenge' or last month's - 'maychallenge' the theme was storms!
I have redesigned my Mini Etsy to be in the left side bar, displaying some of my work. I am trying to see if I can do a mini with just the EAST challenge entries, but I have had enough of computers for today! I will save that for another.
I am working on the Gypsy Rose today! Blessings to all!
