Happy Valentine's Day
So this year instead of making 50 Valentine fiber cards, I decided to take a tip from my friend, Mary A., back in Michigan! I turned Betty Boop into a postcard! Yes, it was cheating but gave me a year off and refreshed my brain for next year!
I made Betty back in 2011 (you can read about her here). At the time, we had a yearly exhibit called Michigan Quilt Artist Invitational and that year's theme was Art of the Kitchen. I found a coloring page of Betty and thought it was perfect! Yep, there is beading on this piece (post link above shows closeup).
I gave this quilt to one of my Florida buds, Betty, who I met at the Warped Weaver's group we were both in. Betty is a Betty Boop fan and has been called Betty Boop from time to time. so I'm glad my Betty has a good home with Betty!
And Happy Valentine's Day to you all!
