Plunging Ahead!

(Above: In Box LXVI. Framed 19" x 15". Click on image to enlarge.)

I've started stitching on the stack of Decision Portraits. It is exciting and scary just how much I have to embroider....especially since I still have a few other pieces "in the works". There's a Grave Rubbing Art Quilt nearing completion and another one underway. I'm in the midst of making bookmarks for the South Carolina Artisan Center and the Sumter Museum of Art gift shop. (Oh....and I was asked to be the juror for the 7th Annual South Carolina Low Country Juried Art Exhibition at the Artisan Center! What an honor!)

Happily, I finished In Box LXV and In Box LXVI for the Grovewood Gallery. I'm really pleased with them.

to collect socks for a future project! I'm looking for all the socks that have no mates....old, worn, a hole or problem! It'll be a fun project! (The collection above came from my dear neighbor Gita! Thanks so much!) So....please collect socks for me!

I'm at:

Susan Lenz
Mouse House, Inc.
2123 Park Street
Columbia, SC 29201

....or at my studio:

Gallery 80808/Vista Studios
808 Lady Street
Columbia, SC 29201

Socks can be dropped off or mailed to either location! The project will get underway as soon as I have a good stash and will become a "public" art event next fall! I'm excited. More details will come once I've "started"!

Wow, what a gorgeous piece! I love your use of colour, especially.

Love the colors in your new piece, really stunning.
Can't wait to see what you do with the socks. I have a pile, I am going through myself.

Beautiful! I can't imagine why you don't want to just jump into about a dozen or so more projects right now. This every minute. Seriously aren't getting much sleep, are you?! I'll be very curious to hear just how many millions of socks you get. I can't send you any....I rematch them to similar ones and make a new pair!! ha ha Ok, it doesn't always work out so well....
