Today's Calmer

Last night I worked a bit on the tombstones next to Luna.  I'm basketweaving the cross, being careful to match the subtle shading as much as possible. I've figured out the lettering on the cracked tombstone and will be working on its background once the cross is done.  That will be a while.  It takes a lot of time to basketweave an area smoothly, particularly when you are constantly changing colors.

Once the cross and cracked monument are finished, I will work the grass around their base.  But first I need to find a fourth color in my stash for the shadows on the cross.

I've been eagerly waiting for folks to get back from ANG's Seminar in Columbus, OH to hear all about it but the pickings are slim so far.  Fortunately, Melita reported in on her experience.

Melita won a first place and the Princess Grace Award (given for an all basketweave piece) for one of her original designs.

She also showed another original piece that was almost as highly rated by the judges.  Both are described on her blog.  Congratulations!

UPDATE:  Melita has added the third piece she showed to her blog.  It's great fun to read how this design evolved.

Jan is also back from Seminar and has two photos of the events in her write up.  Sounds like a great time, doesn't it?

I hope more information appears as folks get home, unpack, and are finally over whatever bugs they picked up after not enough sleep, too much excitement and the rigors of air travel.

UPDATE: Kelly has posted about her seminar experiences, including classes and the goodies she bought.
