Sew Cute!

This was my big piece for competition at our recent art show. I did this large, 30"x40" collage with vintage fabrics, hand embroidery with wool yarn, and odds and ends from my stash. I dyed the wool felt for her hair, and painted the muslin for her face and hands. I wanted a really primitive, naive style for this one....entitled "The Stitcher"....with the "Sew Cute" wording on the front. She is holding an actual embroidery hoop, with "I heart stitching" embroidered on it. The tape measure, thread spool, and pattern paper wrapped with thread are from my old tin of sewing stuff. Her eyelashes are dyed elastic snippets! Her eyes are deep turquoise velvet, and her wonky dress is an old piece of dyed wool. The buttons are from my great grandmothers stock from her "General Store" where I used to get bags of candy as a child. The flowers are also old stock, vintage silks with darling pompom centers!

This is a sentimental piece for me, and I am keeping it. But, I am going to offer this style as a portrait for children, or young at hearts, as a custom in my Etsy shop.
And....She won first place for needlecraft!

Just wanted to share.....:)

Art On The Lake!!

Well, we did our local art show this past weekend, Art On The Lake! My mom, daughter and I do this show every year. The results for the competition were....Second overall for fiberarts for my mom....Second over all for my 14 year old in drawing (she competed in the adult category, so I think that was GREAT!), and First overall for Needlecraft for me!

I do a mixed media group with my paintings and my girls clothing, and my freehand embroidery, but I entered the needlecraft category for my wool embroidered pillows and appliqued wall art. I also did the art for the T-shirt and poster seen above.

These are a few pics of our booths...we get about 40 feet of booth space!

A Fun....but VERY EXHAUSTING weekend!

Art On The Lake

Anyone who knows me locally, also knows we always do Art On The Lake, our local art and craft show, in April. I have done this show for as long as I've been out of school and working. My mom, daughter, and I always get adjoining booths and have one giant boutique on this weekend.

For the past several years, the club that puts on the show, 21st Century Club, has asked me to do a design for the T-shirt and poster. This happens to be the 50th year of this scholarship show! They give scholarships to local high school students, and this show is their fundraiser.

This is my design this year for the shirt.....I was pleasantly surprised yesterday when I walked into a local business and saw the poster on their door. I did the design months ago, and actually had not seen it printed.

I am working frantically on stock for the show....lots of locals as well as tourists come each year!

If you are near Guntersville around the 16th-17th....stop by the Rec. Center and see us!

And grab a T-shirt while you're there!
