Here is Meeks Park, looking at the area where the show will be. I took this picture in April when my daughter was visiting. I'll snap a photo tomorrow to show you the summer festival view!
|I took this picture of the creek from a walking bridge that we can see from our booth.|
In April, it was cool and wonderful. Today, it was hot and sticky.
On the happy front, one of my quilts sold at the Blue Ridge Art Center fiber arts show!! Imagine my surprise when a check for a considerable sum came in the mail! I never was truly happy with how this quilt turned out, but kept it for trunk shows. It is called 'Fancy Dress Party' and features appliqued tropical bird varieties on a pieced background. I guess someone liked it better than I do, and shelled out the money for it. The art center gets their commission, but I did well regardless.
|The birds are appliqued together off the background, and then, applied to the quilt by machine. The leaves are appliqued directly to the background.|
