Here is my postcard, which will go to Susan Lenz for the Cyber Fyber exhibit. I had a hard time finding bags in pleasing colors - but managed to find a variety of greens and blues. I melted them all together, then fused some gold chocolate wrapper pieces on top. I thread painted the flowers - a technique that I've always struggled with but turned out to be incredibly easy on my new machine. I hope Susan likes it. I've got enough of the background left to do something else for myself. The postcare I received from Susan is beautiful. I'll post of photo of it soon - I thought I had already taken a photo, but apparently not.
Oh - here's another picture! I keep forgetting to post this. Remember those bright yellow sneakers? The show was a huge success and the kids did great! Our school did the selection "Beethoven's Day" from "You're a Good Man Charlie Brown". They were all dressed as "Peanuts" characters. Here's a photo of my daughter, as "Woodstock" and her friend as "Sally". We bought solid colored t-shirts, each character a different color, and adapted them for the costumes. I made the Sally dresses by adding the skirt material to the bottom of the t-shirt and stitching on the sash. I painted Woodstock's sneakers, and dyed the pants and socks. The art teacher added the feathers and the dots on Sally's dress. Look at Sally's saddle shoes - white canvas sneakers with duct tape! The art teacher is so clever. I had to do costumes for 6 Woodstocks, 7 Sallys and 1 Lucy (same as Sally but royal blue). I am GLAD to be done. Sewing costumes is NOT my thing.
I really want to thank all of you who visit my blog regularly - even when I don't post anything exciting for nearly a month. I really appreciate you all so very much!!!
