warm tea, october weather, leaves changing color, fall projects

Fabric swatches for some pillows, soldering projects etc

It’s October ! The leaves are finally changing color and there is a crisp in the air. Its been days since I’ve been in the studio and I’m eager to get started on some projects. I’ve seen new locations I would love to document. Each weekend has been busy and quite productive. This evening i made a quick stop to pick up some scraps of fabric.  !! Excited !! I’m inspired to go the extra limit ! I have ideas for making some pillows… stitch the scraps of fabric together or tie them into one of the current ideas I’ve been toying with for months. I thought about putting the fabric behind glass and soldering the pieces together. Its difficult to see this come together so I promise to document this and have the pictures up to share !
Pleased to announce that I’ll have a display during the first Saturday gallery walk at The Muse in downtown Frederick, MD. 5-9pm November 3rd. Come on out and start the holiday shopping extravaganza early ! I will be looking forward meeting and greeting those that can make this wonderful event.

Check out The Muse website
In the meantime…Enjoy some textures, surfaces I captured !

A good friend, breast cancer, and HOPE

It’s been awhile since i’ve blogged. I’ve had so much on my mind. Recently I was given the news that a great friend of mine ( Beth ) from college was diagnosed with Breast Cancer.  Several days after receiving the news I  signed up for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk which takes place in Washington D.C. October 20, 2012.  I wanted to do something for my friend Beth.  So, I made a team.  Bethcon1  My friend Beth is quite an active person. She’s a mom of two, a wife to an incredible man. I am so eager to share all the progress that I’ve made in the past few days by talking with friends about some fundraising for my friend. It’s really overwhelming with the support that has been generated. I’ve had the opportunity  to showcase some artwork during the month of  September and November.
