A lovely family stopped into the shop last Saturday....and this is the result. Thanks to Kate and her lively blog for the rave review.

I continue to be inspired by the gauzy, glittery, girly fabrics that I recently purchased.This piece began as a simple collar, upon which I randomly gathered up and hand-tacked little "poufs". It is a see-though curtain of sequined greys; I imagine someone wearing it over a body-hugging layer of black and sashaying off to some seasonal soiree.

Years ago I bought a big jarful of mis-matched wooden knitting needles at Building 19. They were no doubt from an old yarn shop, closed after many years. Some of the needles bear traces of having had work left on them in the sunlight for a LONG time. Building 19 is a much-loved institution in the R.I/Ma./N.H. area. It's a filthy clutter of job-lot junk where one can find the occasional gem, like these needles.

I recently came across some great fabric finds. Most of it- not my usual fare at all. There is some shine, some sparkle, some glitz. My usual choices are rougher: tweeds, canvas-like cottons, something with a "tooth". But sometimes you should follow the cloth and stretch your "usual".I love every piece and am anxious to see where the fabric takes me.

The paintings of LYNN KRAUSS be on display tonight at Corey&Co. The dot is the vehicle Lynn has used to explore color contrast both in high contrast and very close value and hue. She embeds patterns within multiple color fields, constantly deciding how much to reveal and how much to hide. I am thrilled to be showing this work here at the shop/studio/gallery. In person, the paintings really sing. 'Should be a great evening.
