Getting some much needed stitching done on the train ride up to Poughkeepsie. So calming after so much stress these few last months. 

Excited to get this completed and get started on another project though.

I will post more detailed shots on my progress later.

Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.

Ready? 

Yes, you are, and we’re ready to help you.

(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)

Tonight I went to the opening of the Louise Fili exhibit at the Art Directors Club in Chelsea. It was truly an amazing showcase of a lifetime of type design and lettering.  I am, as always, super inspired by all of her work and elegant forms. Already I am noodling away on a few things. (My reference book wish list just got a lot longer too!)
If you are in the NYC area, I would recommend checking out this exhibit.

A new look

In the midst of everything happening this week I was able to finish my new branding. I am super excited about the change of pace. It is a little out there and different, but I felt like it was needed :) 

I will be getting fabric tags as well to attach to all of my pieces moving forward. I cannot wait to order them! 

Now it is back to work on my project that has been neglected the last week.  

Made my first attempt of rapid stitching at the park today. I would do a few things a little differently next time, but I’m in love! I love just diving in and stitching free form on little to no sketch or plan. Next stop the museum! (Hint @alexlyon_design 😉) #embroidery #fiberart #fiber #sketching  (at Central Park North Meadow Baseball Fields)

You must make, always. You must act, if you believe something. Talking about acting is like boasting about pictures you’re going to paint. The most terrible bad form.

One of my favorite authors. This is a great quote.

Well that little sketch the other night did turn in to a project after all! 

               “Rental Sweet Rental” 

After working on the type and layout for a chunk of today, I was able to transfer everything on to a naturally dyed canvas. This has been designed to be framed in a 16x20 frame. 

Adding a little personal touch, I will be adding the apartment numbers that my husband and I have lived in while we have been together within the filigree detailing.  

Excited to jump in!
