From Chaos comes Peace
This is the piece I was speaking about a few weeks ago. It is hand embroidered on water colored muslin. The center of the piece is an embroidered tangle of threads and it flows out from there in a peaceful flowy way.
My life is still in the chaotic phase. My son was on the waiting list for the prom and he got his tickets yesterday for the prom which is Saturday. We went to get his tuxedo and thankfully it was an easy and quick process and his date is going for her dress today. We are also filling out his college courses and that has been a bit more of an ordeal.
As far as my work goes. My work was accepted into a new gallery that is opening in Troy and I was not accepted as a member of an artist coop which I applied to. I feel I may have muddied the water by submitting older work(which I am currently not doing)instead of concentrating on my framed hand embroidery. But whatever will be will be and I guess that was an opportunity not meant to be(at least for now). I guess just the idea that I am putting my work out there in the universe to be juried should give me comfort.
I hope your day is going well and you are happily stitching!
