Have you heard about the Helping Japan auctions that are going on all over Craft Gossip right now? If not, read our announcement and then go to the Helping Japan section that lists all of our auctions. 100% of the money raised will go to Salvation Army to help with relief efforts in Japan. (Because of shipping costs, this auction is open only to U.S. residents.)
Auction 3 from the Needlework blog. Yes, I made this one, too. Two 2″x2″ micro-quilts mounted in a handpainted chipboard frame. Quilts are quilting cotton and cotton batting, heavily embroidered with clear acrylic pendant beads. On the top quilt, the pendant beads are arranged in a dome and accented with pale blue glass seed beads. On the bottom quilt, the pendant beads are arranged in rows and separated by the same tiny blue glass beads. The background is painted pearl white over a faint harlequin pattern. The frame is painted in metallic blue, sand, and antique gold with touches of copper. 6.5″x12″x1.5″. Frame is fitted to hang. Retail value: US$30. Minimum bid: US$5.
