Say hello to Betty!

Betty has been finished for a few weeks but I keep forgetting to post her! Today we took the photo's for the Michigan Quilt Artist Invitational exhibit that opens on Sept. 9th. There are so many cool quilts all depicting the theme 'Art of the Kitchen'. We had over 40+ quilts to photograph. It's always fun to see the art work up close and appreciate all the work folks put into their quilts.

This pic shows the hearts that I beaded. Well, yes, I had to add beads didn't I! I'm happy with 'Betty' but still need to finish my 1st Betty (the one with the yellow marker on it!). I want to cut it out in a heart shape and then hang in my kitchen.


Tomorrow I'll finish adding the photo's from today into the writeup for each quilt. Then perhaps I'll play a bit with some oil pastels. Or just bead...or just do some mono printing...or.....
