What's all this fabric about? I have been slowly trying to clean and organize some of my art supplies while at the same time still trying to play. You're probably thinking - why don't I just concentrate on the organizing and THEN do the creating? Not how I function - absolutely NOT how I function. And the other thing is that I've joined a crafter's challenge because it is National crafter's month. I found it on my other blog at vox. Part of the challenge involves creating for 15 minutes/day. I could easily do that if life weren't happening all around me. I can hardly place myself in a bubble which is almost what Julia Cameron would suggest - oh right - that's totally another story! Other parts of the challenge include cleaning your space, a bit at a time, I say, and opening an etsy shop or renewing it if already have one. I guess I signed on to the challenge as inspiration but I am certainly not going to be able to say it is the end all and be all. You are supposed to give unused supplies away also. That's what the fabric and giveaway are about. In the process of trying to clean the bedroom downstairs so I can turn it into a studio, I found MORE fabric. In a way I was happy because I had feared I had sold all of it at garage sales over the past couple of years. Like I said this organizing is a slow process. Unfortunately not all of the fabric is something I appreciate and so the giveaway and so the invitation to swap.
I know you'll wish me luck with the challenge. Part of the giveaway is also to hopefully find more people that like my work so when I do open my etsy - well, you get the drift.
If you want to comment for the giveaway, don't know what it's about, need to see the other items besides the mini-quilt, please go to the previous post. You have a week to comment. One comment enters you but please feel free to comment as often as you like. It helps to fuel my creativity and efforts.
Someone had problems commenting so she e-mailed me. Please do the same if having difficulties. My e-mail is at my profile.
There were a couple of questions: about the size - the mini quilt is 4" x 6". The pin is about 1 1/4" diameter. Suze asked about the mauve fabric (very perceptive). You can see a portion of it here.

Back to life and hopefully playing.
Angels be with you.
