ComicCon International and inspiration file
Back from San Diego Comic Con where I worked a great many hours and caught whatever the fellow booth mates had.
I beaded this weekly quilt while there, having finished the main work on Tuesday evening before flying out the next morning.
There are some amazing artists out there, and all were so different. I met quite a few.
