Showtime



My very first show! The opening event was on Saturday, April 4th at Greenwood Gallery in Guelph Ontario. I was thrilled with the hanging of my art. Christine and Joanne did a great job. It all looked amazing! Some very close friends and family came by to see the show and give best wishes! Thanks to Leanne for the lovely roses! Following are the pieces in the show.



Intuitive Hearts This is a smaller version of my auction quilt! I finished the binding the night before delivery!




Isadora, looking saucy in the stairway alcove!





A Taste of Africa , on the way up the stairs.






Autumn Ice and Lake Erie Sunset




Energy, named so because of the colour of the painted fabrics reminiscent of Van Gogh's palette of colours. Echinachea, a fabric collage.




Fantasy Garden, my first original design!




Award winning, Masks and Rusty Metal.




A view of the upstairs gallery




Another Door Opens, published in Quilting Arts Magazine.




Maternal Love, published in Quilting Arts Calendar, July 2007 and Black Dog, Blue Chair.




My newest pieces, Secret Garden and Cascade.



African Art Quilt looked amazing in the gallery!




Walk This Way



Intuitive Hearts and Poppy Field



Ready for the reception. On the table, my bag, Embroidery of India.
I hope you have enjoyed a tour of my solo show! If you are in the area, the show is on until April 3oth at 275 Woolich St. in Guelph. I have photos to share of the workshop I took with Susan S Johnson, making Soft Rocks for next time. I can now relax and get back to more stitching!
