Duluth Bound

I just finished my initial stocking order for a wonderful art gallery in Duluth, Minnesota called the Waters of Superior. This gallery is located in the Canal Park area of Duluth on Lake Avenue. I've been thinking of contacting the gallery for two years but my trips to town are usually a quick jaunt there and back to pick up our son from college. If you are going to the Minnesota Quilters show in Duluth next week please take time to stop in, enjoy the gallery and all the other great shops and restaurants in the area. DS & DGF work at Little Angie's Cantina a few doors away. They have great mexican food!

I will be going to this show for the first time. I am meeting girlfriends in Duluth, but my main reason for the trip is to visit with my son and his girlfriend while they are on vacation from school.


Here are a few more shots of my work in progress. I use this little organizer to sort cut colored fabrics and keep them from getting dusty between uses. Most of the fabrics I use are hand dyed by me. I also use Cherrywood Fabrics for the brown log cabin pin and matching flying geese pendants and earrings.



Here is a look at the back side of my jewelry. I thought you might enjoy seeing the stitching.

Hope you have a great week! Chris

I'm also amazed at how you manage to work with such tiny pieces. I'd be all fingers and thumbs. It muct be very satisfying to finish an order as beautiful as this. There are some delicious looking brooches on the right.

I enjoyed seeing those little bits of fabric and your foundation pieces!! And I liked seeing the packaging -- it's very clean and crisp. I can't imagine that you don't sell tons!!

They all look great, Chris! I like the idea of the little pieces in an organizer. I might need to try that.
