When I went to my local art supply store here in Bradenton, Florida on October 2nd for a Zentangle ATC swap,
I met Susan Stewart. The group was small, so it was easy to talk and I discovered that Susan was just learning about Zentangle
like me . . . and she was an art quilter -wow! We exchanged emails, and after a small delay because Susan's first email went into my junk folder . . . we made a date to meet, have lunch and share some art, oh what fun!
|Susan had explored my websites + blogs and told me in an email she loved the "shades of white" quiltie swap I hosted in 2008. So, I found them in one of my boxes, unpacked them and brought them along -Susan was so pleased!|
|Susan brought her more of her Zentangle ATCs to show me. She had tried adding color to these and was quite pleased. They look great! Click for more detail. |
|Susan brought some of her art quilts to share : ))))|
|I shared an ARTchix fabric Book RR I hosted in 2004-2005. |
This fabric book includes a page done by Helga Stauss, owner of ARTchix Studio! Susan had been to the ARTchix website and was excited to see this book and learn more about RR collaborations.
|Lastly, I shared all extra quilties given to me plus some I had traded by participating myself, in the "shades of sunshine" quilties swap, hosted in 2008.|
It was a really fun couple of hours and a delicious lunch, plus now I have a new local friend : ^ ) Thanks, Susan!
