where does the day go???


I am in full out prep to ship mode today. I spent the morning finishing home by sewing it together with the machine. I have decided to leave all the strands from the machine. I like how this unraveling can be a metaphor for the difficulty and unraveling that at times occurs in our own homes.


I also set up the floor installation so that I could photograph it for the install instructions. It hopefully will look even better on a clean floor sans an annoying cat that will not leave my art alone and a pile of toys nearby.

I also finished the very last embroidery for the show yesterday. You like?


Here is the nest of the braid that spells out "a happy home." I am kind of loving it and want to sort of see it on a large scale? hmmmm. My brain is always turning.

Ok. back to business.

thank you, thank you to all. I look forward to seeing pictures of it all up. Very different type of work for me to do a solo show with. I feel like they are all drawings. So fingers crossed it all works.
