End of Summer

I recently made a mermaid to mark the end of summer.

Marina and Starla

Marina is made of various cotton fabrics which are pieced together crazy quilt fashion. 
She has a mother of pearl fringe belt, gold and red beads sewn on the fabric below.

Her tail is sewn with sequins and pearls

The baby starfish is made of hand dyed silk habotai with clusters of micro beads

Marina and Starla's faces are colored with prisma pencils and pastels.

Focus on Fiber

Last Saturday night was the opening reception for "Focus on Fiber", the Houston Area Fiber Artists annual juried gallery show.
Best of show is a gorgeous quilt by Ginny Eckley titled "Gated Community".  Honorable mentions went to Peggy Sexton and Connie Fahrion.  You can see the winning pieces here:

My darling daughter is always so sweet to come with her mom to these openings. :)
The show will run through September 26, and after that another fiber show, "Interwoven II", will open at this same gallery.  I will have work in that show also. :)
