Although I've finished two large, stained-glass window pieces, I'm behind on my photography so will share these later.  Why am I behind?  Well, today Steve and I are headed to the McMinn County Living Heritage Museum in Athens, Tennessee.  Believe it or not, I'm the featured speaker ... it is actually listed as such!  I'm very excited to be sharing ideas for non-traditional materials for fiber artwork as a source for inspiration.  (My husband Steve is supposed to take some photos.)  

From Tennessee, we are driving to the Horowitz Visual and Performing Art Center in Howard County, Maryland for the ManneqART gala.  The Button Dress has won the "Nightmare Award" of $500 plus tickets to this art/formal event.  What a weekend.  

I'm linking this post to Nina-Marie's "Off the Wall Fridays", a site for sharing fiber art.

Below is a personalized business card provided for the upcoming Washington Craft Show, November 1 - 3!  I can't wait!

That button dress is gorgeous. It could be the definition of upcycling. From mental institute to "Vogue."

Dear Susan,
You and I keep almost meeting each other, or at least our work does! My quilt "Forgiveness" in in the show at the McMinn history center.
I think I'm in good company if my work shares a venue with yours.

Hope we meet in the flesh someday,

Linda Laird
