Just guessin’, but rough calculations suggest that there are about 1500 polymer inchies on this 30″x52″ wall piece that Leslie Blackfordand her husband assembled during quarantine.
It’s quite a collaborative piece that contains Leslie’s collection of 1″ mementos from conferences, classes, and events around the world. The silly squares almost became a nuisance to make as swapping them turned into a ritual at each meeting.
After 20+ years of encounters, the collection turns Leslie’s wall into a warm reflection on friends from around the world gathered in one cozy corner in Kentucky.
The community is growing by leaps and bounds. Lucky that we have a solid history of sharing and support to guide us forward.
What a good idea! They’ve also used the “poker chips” which are impossible to use for anything much….mine is there somewhere, made for the first workshop I ever went to. So many memories!
