Next weekend - November 28 and 29 - I will be showing my work at the Shenkman Arts Centre in Orleans. Besides a wonderful variety of hand made items and art works, there will be demonstrations, music and information about local arts organizations, with a variety of theatre performances throughout the weekend. Their galleries will also be showing various artists' work.
Here are a few hand embroideries I will be taking with me this weekend - I'll have lots of new jewelry too. These pieces were stitched using floss as well as my favourite variegated threads from Colour Complements.

I have to show you the results of a wonderful workshop I took part in recently - working with cheesecloth with Mary Pal. Mary is a great teacher and shared her knowledge freely. Her work is amazing!!

I used a photo of my cat to create this piece with painted background. The white part is done with the cheesecloth.
