festival

the 35th annual international quilt festival starts tomorrow in houston.  on the way there, i’m going to swing by the airport to pick up a certain someone so she can see for herself why i was so taken by it last year… it is the festival for quilters, sewers, mixed-media artists and every combination thereof to attend…

in preparation, i’ve been making some atc’s (artist trading cards) to swap with other people i meet there.  since the cards are small (2.5″x3.5″) they don’t take much time to make, and are a good way to use up the bits and pieces of fabric, ribbon and printed images i’ve had lying around forever… random, but fun for the muses…
