So, I finally got my act together and with the wonderful help of Amelia Ontario of the Mystic Museum of Art, I was able to pick up my pieces from the (now closed) “Six by Six” show. I did the usual, listen to “Hamilton” on my car radio – getting very emotional as I heard the amazing and beautiful words of each song. One in particular – WHO LIVES, WHO DIES, WHO TELLS YOUR STORY – put me into our present pandemic mode. So many stories of so many wonderful people . . . May their stories be TOLD. – – As usual I drive the back roads and of course anticipated what the white marshmallow bunny would be wearing. I was not disappointed – Heart Eyeglasses and a BIG THANK YOU – tells it all.
In the mail yesterday, I received my two Fauci dolls, that were ordered several months ago. Josh Livingston of New England Toy in Simsbury CT shared that through the sale of the dolls they raise $10,000 for the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center COVID-19 Fund.
STUDIO UPDATE: I decided to use only BLACK with WHITE printed fabrics for numbers 9 and 10 of the “Hay . . . Keep Your Distance” series. From my fabric stash I pulled some wonderful printed images to tell the story. The two pieces are lined up side by side on my design wall. I still have to resolve the bird section on the left.
My thought was to not “social distance” the birds as in previous pieces but to just line them up side by side and see the outcome. Kind of the strategy that some of our states seem to be taking!!!!!! Stay Safe . . . Smith Stitch Studio
