More Cranes


Friday I finished "Gawking Cranes" (above) just in the nick of time to replace
"Walk of the Cranes", which I had to take down, unattach from stretcher bars, attach a binding, hanging sleeve, and label, and ship off to Houston to arrives there by Wednesday, August 25 for the Internation Quilt Festival.  Whew, got that done! 
 
Now its on with preparation for the Green Bay Botanical Garden "Art Harvest" on September 11.  This is a juried art fair put on by the gardens with food and beverages, a plant sale and free admission to the gardens.  Its worth the trip for that alone.  If you've never been to the gardens you really should see them several times throughout the year, they are gorgeous and their plant sales are great!  Art Harvest is from 9am to 5pm.  For more information check out their website at http://www.gbbg.org/
 
I'm also hoping to see Nancy Pierce, a friend and fellow fiber artist who also is an extremely talented and award winning photographer who will also be exhibiting at the fair.  Hope to see some other friends there too.

'Gawking Cranes' is beautiful. Your background is absolute fascinating. Wish I was going to QN this year so I could see your other piece up close!

Beautiful work! I'm not often a fan of art quilts because they are so overworked. I love your clear vision and esthetic.
