More purses for "It's in the Bag" 2014

In addition to the two purses I blogged on March 31

"Gilded Coach",

and "Looney Dooney", I've finished three more for the "It's In the Bag" fundraiser.

 "Fun Fossil",

 "Vintage Floral",

 and "Gilded Trio".

Thank you Grace, Mary and Stephanie for providing the purses for me to embellish.

White Butterfiles

Every April, the Denton Poets’ Assembly teams up with VAST (the Visual Arts Society of Texas) in a collaborative exhibit called “Merging Visions” in celebration of National Poetry Month. 
All poems and artwork are originals created by members of the two groups. Some of the poems are created with the artwork as inspiration, and some are inspirations for the artwork.   
The 7th annual Merging Visions Exhibit will be held at the Center for the Visual Arts400 E Hickory St, Denton, TX 76201. The exhibit will be free and open to the public 1 pm - 5 pm Tues.-Sun., April 24 through June 6, 2014. 

For the last several years I have collaborated with Beth Honeycutt to create an entry for this exhibit. 
This year I created "White Butterflies" to illustrate Beth's poem
 "Her Dreams".

The background is free-motion machine quilted hand-dyed cotton. The butterflies are painted on cotton, cut out and fused to the background then thread painted. The flower petals and leaves are made of hand-dyed cotton that has been fused back to back and stitched on individually.

The opening reception -- free and open to the public -- will be held on April 24 from 
5:30-7:30 pm at the Center for the Visual Arts, 400 E Hickory St, Denton, TX 76201
