celebration

Paint, beads and a strip of ruched fabric are used to embellish this small piece that started out as a fiber postcard.


As you can see from the back, it is fairly heavily quilted.
Snowballs in the backyard would be reason enough for celebration.

Nice composition, makes me think of the beach and watermelon, or is that wishful thinking on my part? xox Corrine

This celebrate quote is the absolute Truth! The teacup in the high school exhibit was fabulous. Your postcard quilt work is both FUN and wonderful to embellish. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen
