Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
If I had known in high school that people could make a living doing the same thing I was sent to the principal's office for, I would have spent a lot more time doodling and a lot less time on trigonometry.
Open your next envelope and start coloring and doodling. Truth is, I am a terrible artist. No talent whatsoever. But I can trace, doodle and color with the best of them. When I discovered stencils, it opened up a whole new world for me. And my latest attempt at being creative, is painting with pencils. It is amazing the things you can learn to do on YouTube.
You have 3 cards, and how you decorate them is completely up to you. And if you make a mistake, it is just part of the design. There are no judgments on artistic ability, only that you have joined in the fun. Afterall, if someone had told you that some of Dali's sketches were wonderful pieces of art, you probably would have laughed.
Save one card for your Secret Santa sister's box, the other two are for your secret contacts this month. This is more about getting to know each other, than it is about your artistic ability. Please let your secret contacts know a little bit about yourself. Write her a letter about anything you want. It doesn't have to be about quilting, it can be about a trip you took, or your family, or even your pet peeve. Please try and mail out your cards to your secret contacts by the end of July.
You may get back one or two cards, but I am hoping that everyone will get at least one. Who knows, you may get back even more than that. You never know who might be lurking in the shadows. At the end of the month, please post pictures of the cards you have received. We love looking at them.
Have fun everyone.
Lets see a photo of the card you got , Lee.
Thank you Mel Keith for the cute friendship star with the little jeep picture in the center. I loved the story that went with it. Enjoy your rv! If you have a picture please feel free to post. I will try and post if I can.
