A young artist and an Evolving Embroidery

Sue's newest creation...
Sue, a member of MMA,  is designing her newest piece using specified types of stitches that her embroidery group is assigned monthly in a square format. The piece will become a box cover when completed.  Sue has extensive knowledge of color, design and embroidery so her creations are indeed unique and beautiful. If you look closely, you will see the insects that are exploring the flowers in her design.
  Pam broutht a beautiful quilt that she is doing the finishing touches on, a commission.  Mary brought a colored pencil piece that she is working on and shared a resource for obtaining inexpensive yet quality prints.  Ruth brought a few more of the materials from our recent show at the Yellow Springs Arts Council gallery and continued work on a lovely pastel.  Ann, Toni and Rebecca came to kibitz, visit and work a bit.  We were also joined by Yuki who worked on small paintings and shared info about upcoming workshops with WOWs.  Sandy Kinnemon came and did some watercolor work and Libby (me : ) did what I could to work a bit, inbetween conversations and queries. Lastly, we were joined by a sweet Mom, Elizabeth with babe in arms. 

Next meeting will be the SECOND monday in September, due to Labor Day falling on the first Monday.  See you then, if not sooner!

Ruth found out that Yuki has been included in a juried show in Cincinnati! - Congratulations Yuki!
