At the Saline Public Library today, Gaines and I hung my show, Color Therapy. My pix are not great, but you've seen these pieces before.

Two framed sunflowers hang above the desk. I know it's too dark, but they look better in person.

Sunflowers hang just past the front desk.

Dolls are on top of the shelves by the entrance.

Spinners hang above the shelves at the entrance to kids and teen rooms.

The message wall has Guadalupes.
These showcases are right by the front door.

In the copy room.

The long copier wall.
These are in the quiet room and computer room.

These are in the computer rooms.

These are in the study rooms. They are straighter than they look here.

I'm not sure if you can see the difference in this. I sewed a lot of beads on, and I think I'm done.

Our new tribal name is the Mosackians. We are a people proud of the time we spend making things. Our hunched shoulders and sticky fingers are how you know us. We are splintered, cracked, and stuck up.

Close up of swirl mosaic my daughter made.

This is the mirror I got from my sister Connie.

This bracelet makes 29 so far.

This bracelet makes my count 28.

This is all the mosaics we made.

See the difference grout makes.

Can you tell she's done this before?

This is her third.

This is Madelines' second piece. It's for her brother.

This is Madelines' first mosaic.

We went to my sisters' for a mosaic weekend.

You saw these two a couple weeks ago, but I just grouted them today. They are small, about 6x8 and 8"sq.

Two new quilts, from resist paintings. These were counted when I painted them, so the count is still 24.

The beads are slowly being added. It changes the appearance a lot.

This is us with our son, Zach. Now you know he's real.

More stitches, and a handle.

More of it's covered with fabric strips.

I added a spout and knob.

This is the process I use to make Stuffed Nonsense. First, cut felt shapes, I just winged it, and made crooked ovals.
Then I sewed them together, and saw I needed another one.

I cut a square for the bottom, and sewed it on.

I inserted 2 small tiles, wrapped in batting, to weight the bottom.

This is it, stuffed firmly.

Then I sewed on some fabric.

This is how it looks now.
