Recently our Guild had a motif challenge, where members were given a basic motif, and asked
to produce any item using that motif. I am always amazed at the inventiveness of tatters, and
two of the entries were a chess set, mounted under glass, and complete with small glass chess
pieces, and the winner, a particularly gorgeous beaded tree ornament.
Each member was given two chocolate eclairs (for voting) upon arrival. A bowl was placed
beside each entry, and the entry which received the most eclairs won! I just made a mat
using the motif.
