Here is a picture of my granddaughter Julia in her new 50's skirt. I finished it yesterday just in time for the sock hop that was tonight. Of course she did not want a poodle on her skirt but choose a cat instead. This was so much fun to make. I think part of it was the sentimental aspect since I made one for her Mommy when she was a little girl.

I understand that taking down the quilts and repacking them to send, must be one of the worst parts of a show since it is over and all the excitement is done. Now I am not saying that this happens every time but enough to bother me. For the last show I entered last year I sent a note included with the quilts with specific packing instructions and one of the quilts came back folded when I specifically said do not fold. Maybe I am expecting too much but I have been a little spoiled by the return packaging from Houston where they really handle the quilts with care. Has anyone had any similar experiences? Could it be the packaging?

This ATC was made by Debbie Baker. Debbi painted crinkled tissue paper and then machine stitched it. She then sprayed it with spray webbing and added the copper swirl. I will have to get some of the spray webbing. Thank you Debbie.
This ATC was made by Aynsley McKay . Aynsley fused sheets of plastic bags together and then printed them with a rubber stamp. Great colors! Thanks Aynsley.
This ATC and the beautiful envelope were created by Marga Korioth. The envelope is painted and stitched shirt interfacing. The ATC is untreated canvas, paper & watercolors. The colors are just so beautiful, thanks Marga!
This ATC was created by Mags Roberts. Mags painted paper towels and then machine stitched them and rubbed a little Treasure Gold onto them to highlight some of the surfaces. Great effect and can't wait to give this a try. Thanks.
This ATC was created by Tracey Borders. Tracey wove stripes of ugly fabric together and then fused them to Peltex. She then painted them with white laytex paint and finally painted them with multilple colors of Golden's acrylics. Thanks Tracey.
