WBUUC





Friends from MQC and I hung our art work at White Bear Lake Unitarian Universalist Church yesterday. The church has a beautiful new sanctuary and common areas that are so welcoming for fiber art.

Thanks to everyone who has sent in blocks recently!!** I hung 11 panels of the project. It hangs on the wall opposite the entrance to the sanctuary, and is beautiful. The people from the church were very excited to have it there, and my friends from MCQ have been so helpful and encouraging. It was nice to be able show off how far we've come.

There is a table with the blog address, and blocks so folks can help.

What a good time we had hanging this and all the other beautiful work. Here are some photos of us hard at work.


This show will hang at the WBUUC until February 10th. If you're nearby it would be a nice stop. There's a great little drive in diner down the road for lunch.





**UPDATE!!! I have received a couple of blocks that have the knots in a peace symbol pattern. While I am ever so thankful for help, but, I do have a caveat. I want this piece to be more abstract, and allow each person viewing it to be free to feel and think whatever they need to feel and think without ideas being put in their heads. Any abstract design is fine for the knots or beads. Just nothing dogmatic. It's the dogma that I believe gets us into these nasty situations to begin with. I live in a big "red" bubble in a "blue" state. I have learned that whispering is sometimes louder than shouting.

I am going to keep the peace symbol blocks on my design board as my inspiration, because that is what this project means for me.

The project quilt is stunning. Must be fun to put it together each time and see the color play.

Aren't you so very proud of what you have accomplished?!!! I know that I am very proud of you! I will do those blocks: it's just a matter of clearing enough of the decks to get to them!

As for wearing the blouse: I need to get it cut up PRONTO and into a quilt...deadline is looming! Oh, but I love that blouse!!!
Thanks for stopping by, and keep on with the blocks: they are STUNNING!!
