Orange You Glad I had Enough Thread?

Apr 10

I’ve been delayed in posting this, but I finished yet another embroidery.

It took a little over two skeins of orange thread to make the background. Since I split up the strands of thread, that’s over 100 feet of orange in an eight inch embroidery.
I gave an interview over at Feeling Stitchy last week, and I was also profiled a while back in the Mr X Stitch blog.

The nice folks over at Gallery Hanahou also sent me a copy of the February issue of the Village Voice, and my name is in it! I’ve been printed!

I haven’t posted many graphics in a while, so hopefully I’ll get some new ones up soon.

On Broadway

Jan 28

I’ve sent off my little embroideries to New York City, and so very soon they will be on display in a gallery on Broadway. A bit more info about the show is below, or you can visit the gallery’s website.

The great part about all this is that I get to brag that I was in a show on Broadway. Much in the same way that I brag about attending Stanford (I was there for three days being trained how to make a high school yearbook. Really, does it get any nerdier than yearbook camp?).
Here are links to the other artists participating in the show:
Aimee Ray, Apol Lejano-Massebieau, Diem Chau, Emily Eibel, Emily Katz, Heidi Kenney, Jenny Harada, Jessica Marquez, Joetta Maue, Kate Durkin, Katherine Shaughnessy, Kayte Terry, Kris Garland, Kristen Rask, Mary Yaeger, Molly Dilworth, Nicole Licht, Orly Cogan, Pamela Davis, samski*art, Shanna Fiorucci, Shannon Rankin, Vanessa Lauria, Vivienne Strauss

Anyway… I’ve added four new very bright and very eclectic backgrounds to the site.

Ciao for now,

Howdy visitors!
I have been busy sewing some new embroideries because I was invited to participate in an embroidery show at Gallery Hanahou in the SOHO district of New York City. They have a show called ‘Forget Me-Not’ and I am sending in three of my embroideries. I live 3,000 miles away from New York, so I won’t get to see my poor little creations on display, but if you just happen to live in or near the area you should definitely visit. The show runs from February 6th through the 27th.

Anyway, I’ve also added two new backgrounds, and a new section of printable silhouettes. I don’t know if anyone will actually use them, but at least they were fun to make. I used public domain images for the profiles, so the silhouettes are mostly of Civil War soldiers and wanna-be Gibson girls.
