A beaded postcard

A fabric postcard for my friend who was feeling down. Photoshopped image printed on silk and machine quilted, hand beaded, embellished with copper wire. I don't think all the beading shows up very well in the photo. The large center "doughnut" is a raku bead by Rory Ross, and unfortunately I could not get its subtle colors to photograph well.

These are what I call "bubbles", but what I believe are actually called "Amazing Circles" in Photoshop Elements. My dear friend and Photoshop guru Darleen taught me this technique, even though she had to translate "down" from her more advanced version of Photoshop. The square images above are photographs of architectural elements, which are then processed in Photoshop to create the bubbles. Thank you Eenie!

From the Heart & Hands

This is an Opportunity Quilt pieced by Ann Lockard that I quilted for Annie Copeland to auction as a fund raiser for her non-profit organization, Fiberarts Connection of Southern California. It was finished in December 2005, and won this week by Ann Pugh. (That's a lotta Anns!)
