Recognition at Last :-)


It’s so cool that someone was sweet enough to grab me a chair AND make a label out of repurposed organic cotton!  It was especially cool because the label was made and waiting when I arrived at the Organic Islands festival this morning.  This is going to be attached to my office chair.

About 40 people have designed blocks for the community quilt, which is plenty to make a decent sized quilt that can be displayed next year.  Ideas for the next one are already percolating away … and I had a really great time. There was a really good vibe and the children were so positive and creative.

The flag above is by me, using very liquid acrylic paint.  The colours almost remind me of Jacquard Setacolor, but these blended better.
