|Valentine I made and sent to my quilting friends a few years ago when the chatter on QuiltArt.com was about all the crazy things you can send in the mail.|

"Latte Da" is currently on disply in my daughter's off campus apartment.
I made this necklace for the second annual "Ugly Necklace Contest" from Land of Odds. I was one of the top 10 finalists. I guess they record this contest in the Smithsonian, so there I am. We were supposed to make an ugly necklace and write a poem. I put the necklace on my daughter and photographed it for the entry. Being true to my fiber background, I made fabric beads and added Sculpy beads and various embellishments and feathers. Since my necklace looked like a bunch of fishing lures I wrote:
so exquisitely adorned,
at sunrise we fish.
