Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
If I had known in high school that people could make a living doing the same thing I was sent to the principal's office for, I would have spent a lot more time doodling and a lot less time on trigonometry.
Open your next envelope and start coloring and doodling. Truth is, I am a terrible artist. No talent whatsoever. But I can trace, doodle and color with the best of them. When I discovered stencils, it opened up a whole new world for me. And my latest attempt at being creative, is painting with pencils. It is amazing the things you can learn to do on YouTube.
You have 3 cards, and how you decorate them is completely up to you. And if you make a mistake, it is just part of the design. There are no judgments on artistic ability, only that you have joined in the fun. Afterall, if someone had told you that some of Dali's sketches were wonderful pieces of art, you probably would have laughed.
Save one card for your Secret Santa sister's box, the other two are for your secret contacts this month. This is more about getting to know each other, than it is about your artistic ability. Please let your secret contacts know a little bit about yourself. Write her a letter about anything you want. It doesn't have to be about quilting, it can be about a trip you took, or your family, or even your pet peeve. Please try and mail out your cards to your secret contacts by the end of July.
You may get back one or two cards, but I am hoping that everyone will get at least one. Who knows, you may get back even more than that. You never know who might be lurking in the shadows. At the end of the month, please post pictures of the cards you have received. We love looking at them.
Have fun everyone.
This MOLE was well hidden. And this was a fun project. Real cute, Riana!!
I love that Riana, yes, it has been very fun !!!
I've had two messages from Zoe in my in-box.. One saying the Mole must be Barbara H and the other She is sure it is Connie, but I don't see these messages on the "Impossible Mission" pages. I would think it should be on pg 12 but it's not here. Just thought I should say this in case she is right and no one knows because it disappeared. No it isn't me.
Connie is the only one who mentions here two grandmothers who quilt. I agree with Zoe. It must be Connie and that is my second final answer.
Connie Wilkerson is the mole. She signed up too late to be an official member of the swap this year, but I wanted to include her in some of our fun. She was such a good sport and did such a wonderful job on her cards, that I want to take this opportunity to thank her for all of her hard work.
And I want to thank all of you for playing along with us on this mystery mission. Riana gets the title of Sherlock, since she figured it out first, but the rest of you have been wonderful Watsons for never giving up on solving the clues. The only problem is, that you have made it pretty difficult to come up with something for next year's mystery. But with a diabolical mind like mine, I am sure I will come up with something to keep all of you sleuth's guessing......LOL
This was a lot of fun. I’ve been rolling on the floor reading the comments. Thank y’all for letting me join in on the fun.
Thank you, Kathy and Connie. The Mystery was sooo fun and hope you can come up with something as clever for next year.
Thank you for taking part in our mystery, Connie. Look forward to you joining us next year!
Thank you for the beautiful card Connie! It was a nice surprise having you join us.
Good job Connie. It will be fun to have you with us all next year.
Kathy, great idea for including everyone!
