Fertile Ground and a Call for Ties

I've just finished my most recent wall-hanging, called "Fertile Ground." Pomegranates are symbols of fertility, and I thought there would be nothing better for those of us in the infertility community to embrace than this messy, tart fruit. This quilt is a mixed media creation (acrylic painting, quilting, appliqueeing) and has "miracle beads" for seeds. The miracle beads look dark red in the dark and glow brightly in the light, producing almost a white center like a pomegranate seed.
In other news, I'd like to make a quilt from old men's ties. If you have some that you'd like to get rid of, I'd love to take them off your hands. Just give me a holler at Thanks!
