Back home

I've returned from my art retreat (Artful Gathering - there's a link to Jeri's blog with the same name under my favorites) with an online group I've been a member of for several years. There are about 40 members in all and 17 of them - from all over the country - participated this weekend. This was held from Thursday through Sunday in Grapevine, Texas, and coincided with the Heirloom Stamp Convention. We had a wonderful time, filled with fun, renewed friendships and lots of art!

Several members brought short "make and take" projects or demos. The first day we made our own nametags and then started on 4 x 4's to trade with the group. Since this year's theme was tea, the 4 x 4's were mostly tea-related. We then made covers commemorating our event and assembled these on a ring with fibers to make a darling fatbook. Isn't this a great souvenir of our special weekend?

Here are some of the "pages" of the book.

I'm still scanning these, so will post more later.
