Bring It On...

Brynwood Needleworks - Posey

The "Gathering of Quilts" show opens today in Punta Gorda at the Convention Center. All the pieces have been judged; all the quilts have been hung and it's time to invite everyone in to see all the results of our hard work.

Posey will be on display with the rest of the "Home Accessories and Wearables" entries. When she competed in our guild challenge last November, she earned a Second Place Ribbon.

When she was judged this past week, she earned another ribbon. Posey is now a First Place ribbon winner in her show category!

While she was on break (between appearances), I added some more handwork to her head and back pieces. I added yards of hand ruched ribbon to her head piece, and I trimmed out her blue medallion with ruffles.

She's on her own pedestal at the show, and on her best behavior, too. Her ribbon will be pinned on her back piece before the show starts, and she'll stand quietly for all to see.

If they look closely, our show visitors might even catch her batting an eyelash in their direction! She still makes me smile.

Posey is for sale at the show. She'd like to find a new home where she can be on a pedestal every day. Smiles should be shared.
 
If she's still available after the show ends on Saturday, I'll be listing her in my Etsy shop. My one-of-a-kind, patchwork pachyderm. She was truly a labor of love. 

I'll have photos from our show to share with you on Monday. There are so many beautiful stunning pieces, and I'm inspired by the talented quilters I'm privileged to know. They're true artists.
