Buy local. Buy art.

I am printing and sewing up a storm. This print is now a pocket on a vintage apron. Maybe I can work up an idea for Threadless, the site that creates t-shirts from art by real people. They just posted the RISD collection. Proceeds from the sales go to a RISD Scholarship fund. What a great idea.

Meanwhile I am now the proud possessor of eight (8!) bottles of Champagne, in anticipation of the punch we'll serve at the Winter Lights Opening Reception December 5. We set up this past Monday. Jewelers loaned cases. Green walls were stenciled with snowflakes. I clambered up and down hanging holiday lights. The place looks like a fairyland now, full of sparkling jewelry, glass, ceramics and more. My Altered Aprons will be there: They are all vintage, many hand-made. I print on them and applique, even add a button or some embroidery:One sold while we were still hanging the show, so now I'm busy making new ones, to restock.
