A Birthday, Beach Baby and Janet's Show!

This is my son James on his 28th Birthday at his favourite restaurant. The young lady is Katharine, Jamie's girlfriend. They are both teachers!

My grand neice, Madelyn is enjoying her first visit to the Beach at Turkey Point, Lake Erie. Such a cutie, at eight months old.

My neice Holly and Maddie. Holly is a teacher too!

Maddie! I hope she will like to stitch some day.

Lesson 4 of Organic Embroidery with Susan Sorrell. This is a microscopic photo from the internet of bubble wrap. Here are my appliques before stitching using painted fabrics.

Lesson 2, completed using a photo of seeds for inspiration.

Lesson 3, almost completed on a background of painted facial wipe. I used a photo I had of a beach garden for inspiration. I call it impressionist since it is not completely abstract.
My friend Janet recently had her opening at the Greenwood Gallery. Here she is in front of her stunning art works.

Finally, a word about the World of Threads Festival in Oakville during September. To learn more and see the venues go to www.worldofthreadsfestival.com I will be showing at the Joshua Creek Gallery, Abozzo Gallery and The In2Art Gallery. Exciting times!

What a very handsome couple they make. The organic embroidery pieces are so interesting, sounds like a good class. Maggi
