Here Comes the Sun Challenge!

The sun is and has been many things to many people. Summer Solstice was quickly approaching, the days are longer, the sunshine is warm and inviting.

East members were challenged to create an item that was their interpretation of this theme. Be as literal as representing the celestial body or reflective of this time of growth and renewal.

Most of our team was out playing in the sun! The following 2 entries are here for your viewing pleasure! Please vote for your favorite! Return next week after the pool closes to see who won!

Entry 1
Sun Spots by AKiwiSilkie

This is a 7 Inch Dream Web, and he hangs 23 and a half inches from his hanging loop to the tip of his longest feather.

Dark spots, some as large as 50,000 miles in diameter, move across the surface of the sun, contracting and expanding as they go. These strange and powerful phenomena are known as sunspots.

Sunspot activity cycles about every eleven years. The point of highest sunspot activity during this cycle is known as Solar Maximum, and the point of lowest activity is Solar Minimum. Early in the cycle, sunspots appear in the higher latitudes and then move towards the equator as the cycle approaches maximum.

It's made from a Brass Ring, Cotton Batik fabric, Wooden Beads, Fake Sinew, and Natural and Dyed Turkey Feathers. The Focal bead is a Antiqued Brass Pendant from the Global Nomad Collection from Blue Moon Beads. It's about 2 and 1/4 Inches by 1 Inch and the indents in it are filled with a glittery resin and an 8MM Amber Colored Rhinestone.

The Bright Watermelon and Sunny Yellow feathers bring out these colors in the batik fabric.

Entry 2
Primary Practice Pentagon
by Cobaltquilter

The bright yellows, oranges, and reds dotted with a variety of blue appear like a sun star with sky peaking through!

A series of borders in different widths arranged asymmetrically balance the unexpected order of the tie-dye 'print'.

Machine quilted following the color burst in the center with free motion sunburst motifs in the borders on my domestic sewing machine.

This large lap/crib quilt measures approximately 60 inches across point to point, with 36 inch sides.

She's a coke fiend who would do ANYTHING to get into one of those rooms that were doing lines.
And she never grew up.

"Excellent Article.
Enzyme is dedicated to providing exceptional enzyme-focused supplements at the most therapeutic levels available in the natural foods industry and beyond.

Using cutting-edge formulations, in 1998 Enzymedica introduced Thera-blend™ to the industry. Thera-blend is a proven technology for blending multiple strains of enzymes, shown to be far superior in potency over competing brands.

From the beginning, we understood how everything begins with digestion. All food is composed of protein, fat, carbohydrates and fiber. The key to turning food into energy is enzymes. Once food is broken down, the body can rebuild and heal, build or create energy and remove toxins and Digestive Enzyme."
