Art on the Make: Mixing Art and Mingling Threads

Last night was the HAFA opening reception at Gallery M Squared.  What a fun party!
yours truly with "Night Bloom" - we match!

What a great crowd for the opening of our show.  Here is a shot of all the participating artists:

And just a few of the many pieces of beautiful fiber art:

There were soooo many wonderful pieces in this show.  I wish I had photographed them all!
A great big THANK YOU to Max and Michael of Gallery M Squared for hosting our show!  The show will run through October 26.
