The Great Heart War: Now Showing!

The great heart war is now available for viewing.

I believe the reception is at 6pm tonight.

It was a long weekend. David and I left Savannah at about 9, David on 2 hours of sleep and I on zero. There was still odds and ends that needed to be taken care of shotgun too. After 8 + hours we got to the gallery where Brent, the curator, and some students were ready to help. I don’t know what we would have done without them. We worked until about 12am and decided to return the next day to finish up what was left. Saturday Brent also interviewed me to show at the reception since I couldn’t be there. All in all I think everything went smoothly. After all that work I wish I could be there to see everyone’s reaction to the show. Here are some pictures of the work in the gallery. If you are in the area you should check it out. A big thank you to everyone who helped.( Brent, Students, Sabrina.) An even bigger thanks to David for not complaining constantly even when he should have (I promise I will clean the mess I made of our house this week).

I will be working on a web page just for the Show, as soon as I get caught up on my Fibers homework. I am learning to felt.

The battle STILL in progress.

And I only have a few more days 'til I am on the road.
I have taken the picture from the frame you saw it on before and have been working on an old fashioned quilting frame. (I will be sure to take a picture of this process and post it later) This has worked well in when paired with the quilting hoop and stand I found at a yardsale for $6. I love a bargain.
Here are some details. And details of details.
The river bed is full of death.
I really like the way these rocks turned out.
Yes that is the camera strap. It is hard getting pictures from above the head.

This bird is much more scary up-close.

This will be my last post before the show is hung. I can't wait to post pictures of how it all comes together.

David helped me build frames this weekend so I have got some of my works almost completely finished. It only took three trips to the hardware store. I still have alot of loose ends to fix and eyes to sew on not to mention all the hand sewing that is left, but things are starting to come together.

This is a detail of the first piece in the narrative. This little bird finds the heart.

This is the top part of a three panel piece.

Sewing something this large was harder than I thought it would be.

Here is the "big one". The battle. I am in the process of putting things where they should go and choosing where I should add more.
