I have tried 3 times to make this post.....so here we go again. I am just going to type and add the photos and not try to move stuff around cause that just isn't workin for me.
I have had the idea in my brain for a while and decided to experiment on a collage quilt. I have used a variety of mediums; fabric, paper, ribbon, buttons, lace doilies and old keys and some old jewelry. I think there's a name for that...maybe mixed media. I really like the look, a little vintage, a little retro. The one with the spoon was really fun to do. I love the little vintage hangers. I found these online a long time ago, not knowing exactly what I would do with them. Now that I came up with this idea, I am having trouble finding them. The website I got the first ones from no longer carries them. So I e-mailed the wholesaler to see if they had them and ask if I bought a dozen, would they give me a discount. Well, it turns out they only had a handful left, but they sent me what they had at only 3.00 each (I paid 4.00 for the first ones). They are trying to find a manufacturer in China to make them. They told me a scrapbook company wanted to order 6000 of them if they ever find someone to make them. I hope they work it out! I will be selling these at a craft show I am doing at Clear Fork School on November 14th. I will also have aprons and purses to sell. I'll leave the big quilts to my three "sew sisters", and I'll stick to these little ones!
