Soft Power: a preview


We spent two days this week setting up our show at Art From Scrap. 
Angela Moll, Jill Littlewood and myself combined our work in the gallery upstairs and I think it came together into a fun and cohesive way. These photos were taken before we actually got every thing hung but you can get an idea of the show. I will go back next week and take more photos of the finished set up. We will have an artists' reception on Friday, Sept. 7 so if you are in the local vicinity I hope you can stop by.


Two of Angela's wonderful "Secret Diaries" wall pieces. Love her work!
On the table are some of Jill's earthy hand made paper pieces, waiting to be hung.


Here are a few of my embroidered wall pieces.


Angela is holding up some of my hooked owls to see how they look.



More of my stuff- two shrines, a small painting and four hooked pieces.


Angela's wall piece.


Some of my little owl paintings and a hooked flower I made a bit ago.

And tomorrow Dennis, Jason and I are off to the Sierras again for a quick Labor Day trip. Justin will stay home and feed the cats and play volleyball with his friends, enjoying his time before he starts his studies at UCSB in late September. Taking some stitching to do while the boys fish.
Hope you all have a relaxing weekend and have time for some stitching too!
