After the success of selling some of my work and some positive encouragement from friends, I decided to try to get some of my work into some national/international shows. I ended up having two pieces juried into the Sacred Threads Exhibition in 2015. (I was THRILLED!) My husband and I got to attend the show (in Virginia) and had the most marvelous time. Here are my pieces from that show.
This piece was inspired by a photograph I saw in a newspaper which depicted mourners praying over the coffins of security forces killed in Fallujah, Iraq. I wrote quotes about war and peace on the gray background fabric. The coffins are hand embroidered.
