The Cocoon and The Clothesline at SQTM in Carrollton, GA

Yesterday was WONDERFUL!  There wasn't even any traffic while driving through Atlanta.  Steve and I arrived at the Southeastern Quilt and Textile Museum in Carrollton, Georgia with more than enough time to unload, install, have a nice lunch at a local brew pub, and return home before dark!  The installation went so smoothly because of the generous help from volunteers and staff.  Within a couple hours, The Cocoon was in place and The Clothesline was installed around the walls in the workshop room where a wall-mounted television set will loop the ETV video featuring The Cocoon!

Below are a few of the images from the exhibit.  CLICK HERE for a video walk-through of The Cocoon.  I'd post more pictures but TODAY IS WONDERFUL TOO!  Why?  Well, it's "hunter-gatherer" day!  On Sunday we head north to the Bethany Arts Community where I'll be an artist-in-residence for two weeks.  I will be participating in the organization's 4th Annual ARToberfest with a community crazy quilt activity on Saturday, October 7th from 10:30 - 4:30.  If in the area, please drop by and take a few stitches with me.  I'm following my residency up by conducting a private, two-day workshop in Kentucky!  Plenty of things need to be loaded into the cargo van now that the show in Carrollton is hanging.
