no laurel resting

Been in the studio.. for a little time with the muse, this one a literary one..

In between building an ark, for the 4 straight days of rain, I'm working on my Dec. show (all good things come in 3's right?).. a literary theme.. the show being in the atrium of the library.

This is inspired by the "Little House" books by Laura Ingalls Wilder. I'm working on 12 (eek! ) new pieces, all inspired by famous authors and their books . Paper,fabric, floss all hand and machine appliqued and quilted 24"x24"

my show..

A few images from my solo show at Studio A in Fredericksburg Va..
I'm going back w/my tripod and take some clearer shots.. but you get the idea.

I even did the floral arrangements! :)

More photos etc.. here It was a great night, and thanks to everyone who came out. The show will hang until the end of November.. then another one at the library here! Whole different direction with that one. Ending 2009 on a good, productive note. xoxo
