The night before the projects were due I decided to try my hand at pastels to have one more thing to display at the show. I wasn't all that displeased.
Several of the Guild members came to help put up the show. I was in awe of how artfully they arranged the entries. We had ceramics, needle point, a beaded bracelet, flowers and stained glass. We had a two full size quilts and two quilted wall hangings. We had painted metal, painted pine cones and even a painted coconut!
What thrilled me most was that people came! Our show ran from 4 - 6 PM. The club bar opened early and offered Happy Hour prices. We had slips where folks could vote for "Viewers Favorites". Almost 60 slips were turned in! We also sold tickets for a quilt raffle. We sold $270 dollars worth of tickets at the show, and another $170 the next morning before the show was taken down.
Here are some shots from the show:
And the viewers favorites:
Yes, that would be my hanging with the first place ribbon. I felt a bit chagrinned.
