sweet dreams, not today...

Do you think it would be ok to do this all day 'cause I am exhausted?

But no as much as I would like to be in dream land as C is in this newest piece. I cannot.

Today, I am installing my comforts... piece at the Lion Brand Yarn Studio in Manhattan this afternoon.
I am excited that the work will get to be hung in such a fabulous place for 3 entire months. Come on Martha film another show there give me some exposure. Oh how I wish!
But- I am a little nervous as the piece is very heavy and normally is installed on the wall but since it will be hung on a brick wall it need to be suspended from above? So I have worked with it alot to prepare it- but once all is said and done I will sigh a huge sigh of relief.
Wish me luck.

Hello! I must say that I really like your work, and how rewarding must be to be able to sell it and show it all over the world! :)
Do you know a portuguse artist called Lourdes Castro? She has some works (not so recent) with embroidery also, inclusive a serie of draws os couples embroidered in sheets. Very nice.. I can't found any website in english to show, but when I do I'll send it to you.
Bisou* and keep up the good work! :)
