This post will be short.  Right now I’m in the middle of sewing my samples.  Here’s a picture of my beloved sewing machine, a Janome Magnolia model.

I also, made a quick trip to Lyon Wier Gallery in Chelsea.  The day was very cold and blustery and I quickly went inside to see.  The exhibition there had a group show and one of my favorite artists, Tim Okamura was part of the show. His paintings are amazing and powerful.  Also, I love his technique for realism.  Actually the other artists in the show seemed to be realist artists as well.  Cayce Zavaglia had a jaw dropping portrait made entirely out of embroidery thread!  It looks like an oil painting from afar but up close, you can see the layers of thread.  I was very tempted to touch it!
