WORKING!


I'm splitting my time between working at Mouse House (my antiquarian and limited framing business with my husband Steve) and my studio....where I'm knee deep in polyester velvet, painted WonderUnder (Bond-a-Web) and enjoying hours of free motion stitching on at least four large faux-stained glass pieces!

My friend Kim Bendillo of Garvin Designs took these photos Monday night. By day Kim plans the interiors of major architecture projects. Next week, however, she is "setting my cemetery". We discussed the upcoming installation while I snipped shapes and ironed them into place.

As of last night, four panels (approximately 58" x 18") were constructed and two are completely stitched with 100% cotton thread awaiting my soldering iron....then melting, mounting, and framing. I'm quite sure four will definitely be done....and, if possible, two more!

So exciting! I keep thinking about how your hands and fingers must hurt -- do they?

Sending you love, Baby!

I have no doubt that your hard work and long hours will pay off. If I had just 3% of your talent I'd be happy! I really enjoy reading about your progress.

Wonderful work. Thanks for sharing. When I see how much you are producing, I feel perhaps I'm perhaps a bit lazy, or maybe its no deadlines to meet. Anyway, congratulations your work is beatiful.

You are absolutely amazing Sue. And, I think on the last post you said something about working over 8hours a day with finishing for the shows the goal....fess up....it was more like 15 hours, right?! It's all going to be worth it!
