Crazy Quilt ATC Swap...
Some time ago I participated in a Crazy Quilt (CQ) ATC (Artist Trading Card) swap through Pam Kellogg and her Kitty and Me Designs blog. Pam also creates a wonderful CQ magazine. Please check her link for full information. I am new to CQ and this tiny size (2.5" x 3.5") was daunting at first. This "Key to Anywhere" ATC I received from Denise Waterfield, Ohio. Thank you Denise...I love it.
When I was stuck on how to begin, my blog friend Renee Younger, Oregon blogged tutorials which were so very helpful and took the fear out of beginning. This "Spring Tree" ATC is actually created by Renee and I feel so fortunate to have received this in the swap. Thank you Renee...I love it. Renee's blog is http://monkeyandmutt.blogspot.com/
I submitted two ATCs and unfortunately I cannot find my pictures. Pam notified me that I had a winning entry and therefore I received this bonus CQ ATC from Mary Anne Richardson of Ontario Canada. Mary Anne is an amazing CQ artist and her blog is http://magpiesmumblings.blogspot.com/
Mary Anne was very helpful and encouraging in my CQ ATC journey. Thank you Mary Anne...I love it.
This CQ ATC swap was sew much fun and I hope to participate in the future when the opportunity comes again. Thank you Pam for hostessing and organizing this.
On a personal note, I can only say California is the most difficult state to experience an escrow to sell a home. May I merely say I almost wish I had not announced anything because every day is a trial in patience and perseverance on our part. I need sleep and peace of mind...Please!
Our weather is glorious and Mother Nature is showing her best growing and blooming trees and flowers. The sun is shining and the sky is blue. I am grateful for this. Creative Bliss My Friends...<3
