Beads — so many choices

I have been invited by Dinner at Eight Artists to submit work for a juried invitational exhibit which will premiere August 1-4, 2013 at the International Quilt Festival in Long Beach, California. Though I’ve been working on it since December, I haven’t been able to share it here because one of the stipulations of the invitation is that the piece has not been published (in any way) before acceptance/rejection notices have been sent out April 26th.

The invitation asks for a translation of the theme, An Exquisite Moment. The size is stipulated at 60″H x 24″W — a format I love working in.

I blocked and bound the piece a few days ago. Now it is screaming for some embellishment. Naturally I have turned to my collection of beads. I have several groups of beads that I purchased in Houston last October. I’ll be experimenting with these to see if they will work.


As I ponder these beads and their placement I’m also considering paint. Yes, I think there will be paint.

You have no idea how hard it has been not to share this! Whether my piece is accepted or rejected, I’ll share it here after April 26. Until then . . . I’m back to work.
