Unfortunately we are still here. We had to cancel our trip because DH ended up in emergency early Friday morning (we were due to fly out Fri night) Fortunately it happened here and not on the plane and he came home this morning, still recovering though. Thanks to those who sent me information on Amsterdam but I just couldn't go without DH. We chose the river cruise because it would be relaxing and suitable for him but now I guess we'll never go.
Our exhibition ended on Sunday and DD and I took it down Sun night. I hadn't had an opportunity to photograph many of the pieces before-hand so here are some of them. Above: fabric paper background on a prepared canvas, distressed velvet with free machine embroidered flowers. This one has sold - 7 sales of my work - DH did well too.
Below: Rare Bloom: Specimen Box - flower free machine embroidered on soluble then moulded to shape while wet. I found the box which has a glass window in the lid at the reject shop for $5 - it just needed varnishing.
The framed works below are hard to photograph so apologies for the reflections & distortions. Coloured Stones: below - a reverse applique with FME and beading.
All That Glitters: fabric collage with hand made beads.
Patch Work: fabric collage, hand painted/printed, FME, beads and sequins stitched on.
