a few pix to keep my stitch friends interested!
This is Dad and I at our recent art showing at the local pottery shop. Our little community has begun "first Friday art walks" and we had the good fortune to be asked to set up as artists in residence for the May art walk and the following month. Dad has been my inspiration and solid force in life and continues to be. He made glass lampwork beads and I made necklaces out of them. The sign on the wall says "Art to Wear". I made this in a CQ/found object fashion.
These are a few of the necklaces with Dad's beads. Guess I didn't take any close ups to share! Will do that once the jewelry comes home.
Fortunate to be mother to four fantastic kids, one awesome daughter-in-law, one very nice son-in-law, three PRECIOUS little granddaughters and two PRECIOUS little grandsons! I also have the fortune to have met and married a nice, supportive husband 8 1/2 years ago and he brought with him three nice kids with three nice kids-in-law and seven grandkids. I am now gratefully retired and have TIME to create! When life is good, it is good!
