Several of us loved beautiful items in the Mackenzie Childs store in NY city. We challenged each other to work in that style. Karen created many items with the paper napkins she bought there and created some amazing pieces. Linda painted those beautiful flowers and added fun pom poms and also created the beautiful napkin rings and I created a mosaic. Judy created the beautiful coasters. We admired the catalogs and were inspired to create more pieces for our next meeting.

It was a great opening for the exhibit at the Swords into Plowshares Peace Center and Gallery in downtown Detroit at 33 E Adams.
The free thought provoking exhibit is open Tues,Th and Saturdays 11-3 until Oct.12, 2012.
I had a couple of quilts on display. H(our) Time for Peace (originally displayed at the Salt Lake City, Utah Olympics)and Pope John Paul II.
Wonderful Image Transfer workshop with Linda Soberman at NTGM. We did some transfers with clear contact paper, some with clear transfer packing tape and some with acetone.
The transparent images with the first two methods allowed us to place them on many surfaces beyond fabric like glass and wood. The acetone transfers worked well for some of us and not for others.Better images were transferred using more contrast .Overall, I really like the 3d aspect of the contact paper transfers.
