Stormee at the Artists Co-op in Martin, TN

Today was our day to man the gallery. So Bobby and I packed our lunch and headed for Martin, Tennessee open the gallery and receive customers. It was a good day and it was nice to be in the environment of artists and their work. Martin is an interesting town and because it has so very talented artists also. We will be traveling to Martin at least a couple times a month. But it is not that far from Paris.

It is always so nice to see your own artwork displayed in a gallery along with other artists. Just to think that someone is walking up to your work and trying to understand it. While there several people came in and looked around and said how happy they was to have an artists co-op in Martin.
Here is the display of my jackets.

This is one of my favorite pieces by Peggy King of Martin

I love this birdbath

My handsome husband who is so supportive of me and my art. He is my biggest fan.

The best part of the day was when my dear friend Minister Joan Blackman came over from Union City, TN to spend part of the day with us. We always have a grand time.

This co-op is such and interesting place with a lot of surprises and interesting spaces.

Cloth Basket

This is a basket I made out of clothesline rope. I know that you have seen these where you wrap the fabric around the rope and zigzag stitch it on. Then you assemble the basket with a zigzag stitch. It is pretty big. I was really happy with it. Although I wish I had found a more neutral thread to sew it together with. I used white thread (ha ha). Next time I will not make it so big.
Well I was so excited about making this that I got out one of my scrap bags and cut all the scraps into 2" strips. I am going to make another string quilt. I really enjoyed the last one I made. It was so much fun.

As you can see, I have a lot of scraps. This basket makes a great display for them.
I also made this jacket that is on display in my Etsy Shop
You can read the details when you go to my shop. You can look around while you are in there.

I love the button
