Not terribly bad news. I just got my first rejection letter. I applied for an annual, local show that showcases women's art, ect. They wanted edgy, funky and different things and I guess I wasn't funky enough. It's OK. I got my entry in a week before the due date and they get hundreds of entries and only select around forty. So they said to try again next year.
Now, about those altered men I promised for today. They said they weren't ready (or altered enough) to display themselves today. So I said alright you can do it tomorrow.
So today I will tell you why some fabric stores call me the selvage queen. I save all the selvages (for you non sewers out there - the selvage is the edge of the fabric with the writing on it. Usually the company name and name of the fabric line). And some of them are pretty cool.
Then I sew them onto used dryer sheets and make blocks. From there I make little bags like the one in the picture. And purses and I made a vest, which always gets comments when I wear it to a quilt show.
