Needleplay at Chandler

"Serpent of the Grove" will be going to the show in Chandler, AZ. Seems like the gallery had issues with the other two pieces I submitted which were permanently mounted on canvas. go figger. I expect that I'll be running into these problems if I enter any of the mummies in fiber only venues. Oh well, there's a wider art world out there. Now I have to put a sleeve on this one.

I don't know how 9 to 5 people do it. I've been in a training class all this week and by the time I get home it's all I can do to wash and feed my face and collapse in front of an increasingly disheartening (non) performance by the Braves. Staying awake for the whole nine innings is not a problem. My body still thinks it's "ON" until well past midnight. No dreamtime at all. I think I stitched the last two doors on Ocean Homes last night but at one point I had stitched it to my night gown and had to cut it away. Help me Moon.

Bummer about the mummies! You need a gallery where you can show them off!
As for 9-5, gave that up awhile back... got in the way of my artwork! Loved the part about stitching to the nightie... too cute!

I thought you had decided on a different orientation for this piece?? I am glad you went with this one--it was my favorite!

Sorry the show couldn't adapt to your canvas mounting. This piece looks totally intriguing! Congrats on showing it.

Take care, Deb. Don't try to do too much. It IS hard to work a job, and have the energy for art. Pace yourself. You just came back from a major trip, too. Get some rest, get in a groove, and you'll be creating again soon.
