Embroidery Love!

This blog has been dozing, am sorry. I have been hit by the flu twice since the beginning of the year. Next time, I'm getting vaccinated, for sure. Anyway, I've ceased feeling like a walking ball of snot, so here I am.

And one of the things I'm excited about early this year is "Forget Me Not." It's a group exhibit, it's about embroidery, it's all about love, and it is curated by Kristen Rask of Plush You! fame.

Here are sneak peeks of the three embroidery hoops I submitted for the show:




The show will be opening on 6 February at Gallery Hanahou in New York. Too far for me, but if you're in the area, please drop by and tell me how it looks! The works will be available for sale online beginning 11 February. Check out Gallery Hanahou's website here.

Magic Work

The making of my terrariums is a long and meticulous process. (Magic involves a lot of time and a fair amount of chance, you know. ) Recently, by the light of a full moon, two recently began exhibiting signs of life.

They're in my shop right now.


And a big THANK YOU to Jena of Modish, Delia of Fierce and Nerdy, Holly of Robot Love, and Little*s of Handmade France for the recent writeups about my works!

All Ready for Valentine's Day

I have to admit: Vintage stamps and printing blocks are taking over my life.

Shopping List Saturday

After two weeks without it (due to holiday craziness, a bout with the flu, and--I have to admit--a dose of laziness as well), Shopping List Saturday is back!

This weekend is all about birds because I live right near a bird sanctuary and they're appearing all over my works these days too. Here are just some of the delightful stuff that caught my eye over at Etsy:

Clockwise, from top left: Star Tern by John Binet Fauvel, Little Birds by Red Hot Pottery, Bird Explosion by Champignons, Be Wise Save by The Runny Bunny, Winged Penthouse by Jackson Creede, Tree Birds by Expressing You

Work in Progress

Now that a new year has hatched, so have these chicks, currently running around my workroom.
