Jenny and hearts
I went to the embroidery party at Gallery Hanahou. I love everyone at this gallery. Always a nice time. The show is up until the 27th and the work will be available online on the 11th. Definitely check it out because there is a lot of beautiful, interesting and fun work in this show!

It’s doubly exciting when something blooms in the winter. This guy stretched out his neck really far in search of scarce winter sunlight, before deciding to open up. This is my favorite color, as you may have guessed.

Happy Hearts for Forget Me-Not

Two Happy Hearts and One Happy Heart

Three Happy Hearts
I stitched some Happy Hearts for an exhibit called Forget Me-Not. It was quite an enjoyable project and I am so happy to be a part of this show. I can’t wait to see the rest of the work at the reception. And now for the official announcement from the gallery…

Please join us on Friday, February 6th for a show on love, embroidery, and new interpretations of both.

For generations, women have expressed love of family through the painstaking art of embroidery. This February, gallery hanahou presents a new generation of embroidery artists using needle and thread to depict love in broader terms, whether idealized and simple or brutal and complicated. Curated by Kristen Rask, this group exhibit of affordable artwork will win your affection in more ways than one. A meaningful alternative to waxy chocolates.

In conjunction with Forget Me-Not, gallery hanahou will host a special Valentine embroidery workshop on Saturday, February 7th, at 1 pm. Space is limited, so please contact asap for details!
