I've lost many hours of sleep to bring you Marine Life 2012. We all make sacrifices for our passions don't we? My journey continues as I carry on from the Low Tide theme of 2010. Looking back I'm surprised I've been able to make so many new pieces with a little one underfoot.
There are two familiar pieces from the Low Tide show, some remakes on similar themes, many entirely new pieces and at least one piece that was published in the book Hoopla: the art of unexpected embroidery, by Leanne Prain. If you haven't seen the book yet, I'll have a copy of Hoopla at the Artist Talk/Slide Show Oct. 4th. Three of the four jellyfish and octopus pieces from my article in Quilting Arts Magazine, issue 46, are sold but there are similar pieces to choose from.
See you soon!
