Honestly, I didn’t think that I’d get all those art quilts done, but I DID and then some. I’d planned for 1 large and 10-15 small, when I actually made the one large, 16 small and a medium sized one as well! I’m quite pleased with the mounting scheme I designed and executed (along with hubby’s help) for the small quilts, here’s a quick picture I took with my cell phone a couple days ago:
I LOVE how it stand out from the wall! Actually, pictures were the one thing that didn’t happen before I hung the show; some of the art has already gone home with other folks so there are a few pieces that will only be recorded in this group photo:
By the middle of Monday, my show looked like this:
So I had to go in and rearrange things. It now looks like this:
which is perfectly acceptable! I do want to make 2 more of the leather handled linen totes though…so that’s added to the list. I also got to dye this antique linen table scarf:
which I really love! I used it for the pedestal to hold a guest book, pencil cup and business card holder. My hubby thought I was nuts sewing those up Saturday night/Sunday morning but I’m glad I did: when I walked into the gallery Monday afternoon to move things around there was a pair of the women was looking at my corner and one of them picked up the pencil cup and showed it to her friend exclaiming how cool it was, that was great to see!
You may be wondering what happened with the Morris chair hubby was making for me to have indigo dyed cushions? Not only was he quite busy, but the cutting of the tenons that all those slats would fit in is proving difficult, the wood splinters easily. We’ve ordered an attachment for his drill press that should help with that, but obviously that project is on hold. However, there wouldn’t have been room for it, so it’s just as well!
