Hi All,
Just a quick note from the sunny but not so warm beach.
The show season is over for 2010 and it is time to enjoy
family and friends,
sand and sun!
Have a wonderful Hoilday Season
and Thank You
for following the Embellished Spirit in the past year.
I look forward to sharing many new quilts,
artistic figures,
and techniques
with you in the New Year!

Work for the Rivercity Figurative Artists' Guild Annual Show and Sale

Along for the Ride
The mermaid riding the turtle is finally complete (well, I may still add some beads to the turtle).
What a joy this doll has been. The idea was conceived in Virgina Beach, VA while walking on the beach in November of 2009, so she was a year in the making.
Posted here are views from the back and front
of this Artistic Figure in Cloth
Titled "Along for the Ride".

A Detail of her clothing, created with hand painted lace.

A Detail of her face.

Work for the Fall Gallery Show and Sale

Work continues on the turtle doll and the mermaid.
To be titled "Along for the Ride"
I have lots of help on this project, as you can see in these photos!
Before the week is over I'll send photos of the now
"underconstruction" mermaid and the finished sea turtle.
Please note my previous posting
that carries the information about the
Rivercity Figurative Artists' Guild Gallery Show and Sale,
coming up this weekend, November 13/14, 2010.
