Finished Object #3
Above is the third U.F.O. that can now be moved to the completed column of my list.
This is my art quilt for my exhibit, Breaking Traditions. Its much simpler then I normally work but it has a real homey comforting feel to it and that's what I was aiming for. I don't know if you can tell from the picture but I stitched it within an inch of its life so that made me happy. (I LOVE hand embroidery.) It is called "A Place to Bark" and it honors Bernie Berlin's nonprofit dog rescue by the same name, A Place to Bark. Bernie rescues dogs, rehabilitates them and then finds them what she calls "forever" homes.
She's truly an angel on earth, check out her blog (link above) to see the little lovelies that she rescues. It'll definitely make you smile. :)
I think I will spend this evening putting labels on the backs of things. One of my least favorite things to do, by the way.
I have a much larger art quilt that is calling my name that wants to be the next victim in the U.F.O. Olympics but I don't know if my back will be up to all the vertical time required to finish it. I may end up breaking a rule and working on it here and there when I am able to rather then all at once. Girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do and I'm kind of a slave to my back right now so I'll figure it out.
The finishing parade will continue! Stay tuned!
