Oak Leaf Reel with Cut Flowers
ACEO's - the Addiction! That title sounds bad, eh? I better reiterate what an ACEO is. ACEO stands for Art Cards Editions and Originals. It's basically a 2-1/2" x 3-1/2" trading card that people collect. I've started making quilty ACEO's, and I just love it.

They are tiny, quick, and fun to make. Here's a close-up shot of my second ACEO, Oak Leaf Reel.
Oak Leaf Reel with Vintage Irons
And here's a pic of the Oak Leaf Reel with a few of my favorite things. You can really get an idea of the size of it in this photo with the two irons. I love these two irons. The large one is so ornate, and has a great star on top, and the miniature iron is so mini! And it's made of genuine iron material - LOL!
My third ACEO, Beryl's Tulip Basket was made during the deluge of Tropical Storm Beryl.
Beryl's Tulip Basket - Woodland Pic
Today's another rainy day - "Drismal" as my weatherman would say.
But a happy day, too. My 7 y.o.'s little league baseball team, the White Sox, finally won a game last night. Go White Sox!
Beryl's Tulip Basket with Tulip Window Art
Here's a nice shot of Beryl's Tulip Basket against the back window of the old 60's Shasta camper we're restoring. Wes made a tulip design on the back window with some silicone to cover the cracks. Cute in a folk art kind of way. I like how you can see the reflection of the sky and the trees in the window. This photo was taken on a much nicer day.
These two ACEO mini-quilts are available in the new shop section, ACEO Mini Quilts. ACEO #4 is in the works, too. I'm making a Sunbonnet Sue type for this one. She's a looker!
Until next time...please visit the Curlicue Creations Shop, and have a super day!
