Thursday

I've got a present for you!

Because it's my birthday! Could this be a shameless ploy to get more birthday wishes? You bet! But I am not the only one in the blogosphere doing it, so there.
Here's the scoop: leave a comment here today, all day, till midnightish...and tomorrow I will randomly choose one of you to receive a gift from me.
Want to know what the gift is? It's actually two gifts, yep, feeling happy around here. The first part is a copy of my brand new DVD for Cloth Paper Scissors 'Texture Transformation: stitch, alter, recycle'
and the second part is a brand new artwork. This little piece (8.25"x6.25") was started as a sample for my segment in Quilting Arts TV series 500. It's been patiently sitting by my sewing machine, waiting for me to finish it. And last night it finally got it's wish! It's called Zakat/Закат/Sunset 2. It is comprised of completely recycled materials, mainly a dryer sheet, a color catcher sheet, muslin and fabric scraps. Painted and free-hand machine embroidered.
Come on! Leave a comment, don't be shy!

Great site, Natalya. Also a great idea to drive people to it. Best wishes for a Happy Birthday, and I will be sure to return to regularly to see what you're working on.

By the way, the next TweetUp is coming soon. Mid to late January is the plan -- should be even better than first two.
