New Work for Spring Art Expo, 2013

I just finished these yesterday and immediately got them hung at the BIC Realty office in Cook, MN for the Spring Art Expo.  These are my photos, except as noted, printed on fabric and dimensionally stitched.

Creating again!

I had a long break from my creativity and sewing due to health issues, mostly, but also because I've been secretary of Northwoods Friends of the Arts  here in town.  A small group of volunteers have made amazing strides in just three years, and we will be holding our third annual Spring Art Expo
starting this Friday, 5/31/2013.  Over 35 artists will have their work in 22 businesses and 2 galleries in our area for 2 weeks, plus we have gotten three grants for concerts next week. 

Meanwhile, I've been sewing again, putting my photos on fabric and sewing them "dimensionally."  These are from January and February, 2013. These are from my photos, unless otherwise noted.

Stole for Ordinary Time

This stole was given to our pastor this summer in honor of her 5th anniversary at our church.  The stole was a gift from our church choir and was designed and made by me.  The green of ordinary time represented growth and life, so I scanned some real leaves and printed them onto fabric, which was then cut out and appliqued onto the stole. The blue triangles represent the Trinity. Blogger won't cooperate and upload the full length view.

More stoles HERE.

Tick Warning



I hate it when people forward bogus warnings, and I have even done it
myself a couple times unintentionally, but this one is real, and it's

Please send this warning to everyone on your e- mail list.
If someone comes to your front door saying they are checking for ticks
due to the warm weather and asks you to take your clothes off and dance
around with your arms up,


They only want to see you naked.

I wish I'd gotten this yesterday. I feel so stupid.
