I'd like to thank everyone for all of your kind words and comments, there just aren't enough hours in the day to get around to thanking you all personally, but I really do appreciate your kind thoughts.
I've been working on art for our upcoming exhibition 'Five Take Flight' at the end of June. If you're able to come we'd love to see you.
Following are just some of the pieces that I will have in the exhibition.
This is a small 5" x 5" box canvas that I've painted then applied stitching with my hand dyed threads.
This is another 5" x 5" boxed canvas with stitching.
I always like to continue the design around the sides of the canvas.
I'm also creating a series of collage and stitched owls on painted 5" x 5" canvases. This owl still has to be stitched to the canvas. It's only glued at this stage.
This is a felted and stitched piece that I created using my embellishing machine. This will be stitched onto a painted canvas backing. I still have lots more decorative stitching to add to the piece.
