Stitching at the Fair

 Next week our Stitchery Guild will have an exhibit up for 5 days as well as a few members sitting and stitching at our local fair.  Here are my pieces that will be on display.
 Did this small piece last year which was my first attempt at wet felting.

 Various pages from my Mixed Media Textile book.
 Book pockets in my book for a few atc's.
 A bit of Tyvek, painting, soldering and stitching on these 4 atc's
 Postcard size experiment with painting on cotton. The kokopelli & swirls are pieces of organza.
 The bookcover was made from fabric paper that I also machine stitching on.
 Another bookpage
and another bit of painted cotton with a salamader made from a candy wrapper fused onto a piece of black felt. It sure would be great if we had a few people join our guild from seeing our presence out in public and stitched pieces on display.  Here's hoping!

  5. I think Margaret is right; you have so many wonderful things and with such a variety that you could do the show on your own!!!
    With all these styles there must be a lot of attention on your Guild show. Best of luck for enlisting new members.

  15. I have been missing posts and am trying to catch up. Jenny your stitching is so beautiful. Your items for the fair are stunning and look like you could do a one-woman show with all of your amazing projects. For your very first wet felting you did a fabulous job which is lovely. Enjoy the fair and all the accolades you should garner dear...
