Mat Board finally arrived!

Two weeks ago I forgot to order mat board for my fiber art work. I thought this would only delay the mounting, photography, and framing of these pieces until the next delivery ... which was supposed to be a week later. Of course this would be the time that my supplier's van broke down!
(Above: In Box CXIII. Unframed: 28" x 16". Framed: 34" x 22". Polyester stretch velvets, previously painted heat-activated adhesive, recycled black acrylic felt substrata, metallic foiling and chiffon scarves with self-guided free-motion machine embroidery and melting.)
Believe me, I'm not really complaining. I just had to wait ... not stand out in the heat, call expectant clients, and deal with a non-working vehicle! Because I'm making work for the upcoming Washington Craft Show and the Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft show ... both in NOVEMBER ... I could just continue making work and adding to the stack until the mat board eventually was delivered.

Now, I have a blog post featuring LOTS OF WORK! In two weeks I managed to stitch one large and two small "In Box" series pieces and seven skinny Lancet Windows! (Unframed: 27" x 7"; Framed: 31 1/4" x 11 1/4".)

Drum roll please ... here they are! Just scroll down and enlarge for details! By the way, over the weekend I finished stitching five Lunette Window ... horizontals! As soon as they are melted, mounted, and photographed, I'll be posting again!
