recent talking points

It's a crazy time. In the middle of it all -- work, homelife, kid's activities, relationship struggles -- I continue to work on my crow piece and to consider its meaning. It is looking beautiful -- though still lots of work to do, because the vast part of it is hand-sewn. When I'm not stitching, I am 1) Getting upgraded bifocals to make the stitching easier (old lady), and 2) thinking about other birds who are "in relationship" with crows.

The Snowy Owl, for example. Who will dive at solitary crows at dusk and can successfully kill and eat a crow. Not yet sure what I will do with the graphic above, though I'm thinking of playing with it more on Spoonflower
In other news I was accepted for publication in the online magazine ArtAscent, in February. And I have a small commission to finish, as well as a private workshop to teach, "Fiber Arts Playdate," towards the end of March. (Artist/moms, birthday cake, art, wine. Sounds pretty good eh?) 

I also need to curate a couple shows for work. Sigh. 
Thank God I get to make my own art. I'd lose my mind without it.
