This year you can find my thoughts and my work featured in the following books-
"Hoopla includes twenty-eight innovative embroidery patterns and profiles of contemporary embroidery artists, including Jenny Hart, author of Sublime Stitching; Rosa Martyn of the UK-based Craftivism Collective; Ray Materson, an ex-con who learned to stitch in prison; Sherry Lynn Wood of the Tattooed Baby Doll Project, which collaborated with female tattoo artists across the United States; Penny Nickles and Johnny Murder, the self-proclaimed Bonnie and Clyde of embroidery; and Alexandra Walters, a military wife who replicates military portraits and weapons in her stitching."
PUSH Stitchery: 30 Artists Explore the Boundaries of Stitched Art
Both are available at Amazon, and you can find links to the books on the right hand side of this blog.
I'm also going to be featured in the summer issue of Fiber Arts Magazine for my lacework. This is really exciting for me, because I actually subscribe to Fiber Arts!

Anyway, that's what's up with me! It's been hard to keep my trap shut about all of this, and I can't believe it's finally happening. I only wish I could send copies to everyone who was ever mean to me in Jr. High. Ha! Kidding...
Anyway, I know I haven't been posting very frequently, but it's only because the lace work I'm doing now takes sooooooooo loooooooong and I'd rather share it when it's done.
Also, I've got the largest piece I've ever done up at Hotel Hadley Studios. If you didn't get a chance to see it in Seattle at The Twilight Artists Collective, you can head over to the other side of the country and see it in Siler City, NC., curated by our Miss Drucilla Pettibone.

Anyway, it's been a great couple of years. I can wait to see what the next few will bring.
