New Large "In Box" Series pieces for the Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show

(Above:  In Box CCCLIX, detail. Layers of polyester stretch velvet fused to recycled black industrial felt with self-guided, free-motion embroidery and unique melting techniques.  Click on any image to enlarge.)

I'm happy to report that studio work is coming along nicely in anticipation of the upcoming Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show, November 8 - 10 though I'm a bit worried.  Why?  Well, we didn't end up on the odd numbered side of the first aisle.  This is the area behind which is a large, open space ... as in "storage" for art as opposed to another artist's booth.  We've been assigned booth 104.  It will be different.  I will make it work but I'm still worried.

I'm also working on a new batch of Christmas ornaments.  They are coming along quite well.  I'm not worried about them at all!

I'm also no longer worried about Steve.  Yesterday he had cataract surgery.  He came through with flying colors and spent most of the rest of the day resting with our "therapy cat" Max.  Today, he's back to framing pictures as if nothing ever happened!  Below are the other, large In Box pieces finished this week.
