More Art-O-Mat Treasures

I receieved my second paycheck from art-o-mat on Christmas Eve. This one was over 10 times my first check and my husband didn't even laugh. I sold 62 pieces over the last three months. If this rate continues I will need to make about 250 mini quilts and other fiber pieces a year. What Fun!!! These are a few little "Dreams" that I made while taking a break from cleaning and organizing this New Year.

When I started this series, the little fabric beads reminded me of dreams tied up in a scroll. Each piece has a name that refers to a type of dreams. Previous works have bee "Secret Dreams," "Growing Dreams," "Wild Dreams," and "Bandaged Dreams." haven't come up with names yet, so if you have any suggestions as to what type of dreams they appear to be I'm open to suggestions.
