SO heres Our "Sweet Chair-ity" contribution

Artists in Augusta GA have painted or decorated 24 "Sweet Chair-it" chairs to be auctioned off to the highest bidder Nov. 15 at Lexus. All of the money will go to Ronald McDonald House. We have one here on Greene Street a lovely old Victorian house on a shady tree lined downtown street. Staci's chair is on display at Kudos, an upscale gift store, for the next month.

Vote for Staci's Ronald McDonald Sweet Chair-ity contribution here...course you know how i will vote!!

Staci Swider asked me to make a pillow for her chair which is quite a throne for a little girl....we decided we should have added a pea under the tuffett for Miss Muffett:> Staci glued alot of decorative papers to it as well as painted it. She will be downtown this weekend at Arts in The Heart doing a paint out with other local artists at Metro Spirit Newspaper....should be aLOT of fun!! The quilt guild will be selling tickets for its donation quilt ...and giving it away on Sunday when Arts in the Hearts closes.
I added pictures of the dupioni silk pillow that I made for the chair...its only about 10" across...child sized!
The stigma was stitched around to give the center more definition and to loose some of the poof of the project.

And so of course i made another pillow..and have an idea for another one...too much fun and gets rid of silk in a hurry...did i say i have a huge pile of dupioni...
