maude show photos

Scott took this lovely series of photos of the show. I asked him to shoot it before it got dark, so these were actually taken before people showed up to see it.

If you want to, you can see the rest of the photos here.

many thanks

Thanks so much to everyone who came down to see the opening on Saturday evening. And a great big thank you to Jess and Stacy from Maude.

We have had a busy and exciting couple of days! We're looking at houses and thinking about houses and talking about houses. And then back to school nights for the kids and finishing, framing and hanging the show, and orthodontist appointments and just lots going on.

Also, I broke the lcd on my camera. Frackersnappit!!! It was on the tripod and I guess the legs were wonky and I spun around and my camera fell and smashed a really cool ironstone pitcher and the lcd screen broke.

I hung the show at Maude this evening and it looks good. Jess and Stacy were really positive about it, so I feel less nervous than I sometimes do!

I hope to see you there tomorrow evening from 5:30-7:30. There's a show at Boomerang the same night that looks to be really cool so you can take in two shows.

feltmaking classes

I am going to be offering two feltmaking workshops in September. Tentatively scheduled for September 22 and 29. Students will learn the fundamentals of soap and water feltmaking. We'll make a flat felt project and a resist project. With those two techniques in your pocket you can make everything from scarves and rugs to pouches, bags, seamless slippers and hats.

The class will be 4 hours long and includes materials and a light lunch in a beautiful garden setting in Santa Rosa. Cost of the workshop is $60. If you are interested, you can send me an email using that pretty little button there on the side that says email me.

Later I will teach an advanced class and a needlefelting class, and maybe one for kids because kids love making felt and it's really fun to do classes with kids!


Yeti Loves Seamonster

I have joined in with a new project called Yeti Loves Seamonster, it focuses on etsy sellers who make things for kids. There is a blog and there will be artist made coloring pages for download. I'm going to work on mine after my show.

Look at this cute thing, and this one!

finishing up

I'm finishing up work on my show. Framing, editing out pieces and seeing where I have gaps andwhere I need different pieces. I'm out of practice. But I am loving the long hours of studio time and I'm trying to figure out how to organize myself so that I can do more art work, spend more time and really say the things that I'm trying to say.

I sent out a mailing through my email newsletter last night. If you are on the list and didn't get it, just let me know, and if you're not on the list, you can sign up here.
