In between family time and getting to know my fellow Latitude members, I managed to make a piece for the Quilting Arts "Coffee or Tea?" reader challenge. I always have a lot of fun with the ideas presented in the challenges, but don't have enough time to respond to each of them. The "Coffee or Tea?" challenge asked readers to share how they enjoyed their cup of Joe or tea in an 8" x 10" piece. Well, I drink neither coffee nor tea, but I still wanted to participate in the challenge. Here's what I made as a result:
I hope the editorial staff gets a good chuckle when they see it, though it's unlikely to be selected for publication since it's not about coffee or tea. Still, this little piece served its purpose. I probably should have been more careful with the letter placement and overall spacing but I had fun, it was a good way to get back into the studio after a little break, I solved some "problems" along the way, and I managed to work with tulle (something I'd like to work with on another piece I have in mind). Time well spent, I'd say.
