Happy Friday! A few more sneak peeks…I’ve hung all the artwork at Drygoods Design, and I really like how they look in the space. It was too dark to get photos of them in situ, but I will try to snag some pix in the next couple of days. There are 12 pieces in total and I took some pictures of them before taking them to the studio/shop.
This one is my absolute favorite. It’s called “wabi-sabi“. It took a million years to stitch, and the metallic linen is amazing – I love the textures of all the elements together. It’s not big (the fabric portion is about 7 inches x 7 inches), and so the stitches are minuscule. Here’s a straight on shot:
All proceeds will be donated to the Sandy Hook School Support Fund. I realize my little art show is not going to raise very much, but I wanted to contribute in some way. “Sashiko” means “little stabs” and was traditionally used to repair worn fabric. I wanted my creations to reflect a sense of mending, of stitching together, of reinforcing strength through small measures.
Have a lovely weekend, friends! The Art Walk is from 6-9pm this Saturday, January 12th. I will be there from about 6-7pm. If you are in the Seattle area, or know of people who might want to check out my stuff, please spread the word.
**Update: I just found out that owner Keli at Drygoods Design posted a very sweet promo for the show and my blog here. You can also see another little sneak peek.**
