As I said before, I don’t sew. Ask me to cut out and put some glass pieces together, no problem. Ask me to cut fabric and sew it together, big problem. Oh, I can do the occasional hem, repair a split seam and the like, but actually making something gets me crazy. showing off this fabric I have been designing leads to the obvious question “so what are you going to do with it?”. Luckily, my Mother still enjoys seeing and is game for a new project while waiting out winter. So we got together and I cut and pinned, she sewed and we made some scarves. I have been wearing them and getting good response. Today I decided to try my hand at sewing one myself – maybe after all these years things have changed. Nope. Well, I did set myself up for a challenge by using knit fabric, nothing like adding an extra layer of difficulty. A nice infinity scarf is now around my neck, but I don’t want anyone to look too closely. I have a lot of respect for those who sew with knits, and even more for my Mom who made me a bathing suit years ago. I will be going back to my other idea of making bags and clutch purses out of woven fabrics. Maybe with practice on some easier things I will improve. Or, I will find people who do sew…..
Some of the photos that made their way to The Flying Pig in Algoma today. All are aluminum prints, my favorite printing style right now. High gloss prints on metal give amazing depth and dimension to the prints – they almost look like the glass. Looking forward to seeing them on the walls!
I started this blog over a year ago, but then was so busy creating glass and photos that I haven’t been back since. Well, it is time to get going again. In the last year I have had one gallery show at The Flying Pig Gallery and Greenspace in Algoma, WI and have another scheduled for September at The Meadows Gallery in Sister Bay, WI. I guess you could say the photos have been well received. The photos are also now in a gallery in Sturgeon Bay, WI – The Greco Gallery, which is a wonderful co-op place with wonderful artwork and artists. Below are a few images, hope you enjoy them!
