Philadelphia here i come

Just got a notice that Same but Not will show in the ArtQuilt Elements show in Philadelphia next Spring. The nice thing about this show is that it is at the same time as the SAQA/SDA conference Identity:Context and Reflection and the Fiber Philadelphia biennial devoted to all things fiber art.

A must be there event.

Same But Not

Oficially finished the Same But Not piece. Tell me what you think.

Just need to add a sleeve for hanging.

How can you resist?

Lately, I have wondered why I am so besotted with fiber art. Today, as I walked into my studio, I noticed the sun glancing across the surface of one of my test pieces. Is this not the most tempting texture? bubbles and slubs, wandering thread paths, texture texture texture.

That's why I do it.
