Gallery Pics

I worked so hard over the past month to get ready for my art show & then forgot to take photos until just today. Today I took my show down, lol, but made sure to document everything before I packed it up into my car. Sadly nothing sold so I will probably be giving these as Christmas gifts. 

I have a whole list of other illustrations I want to make into quilts & will start on them after the first of the year. I've been very blessed to get a ton of custom orders to last me through the end of February. All this hard work is paying off & my dream of staying home full time after all the kids go to school is starting to feel attainable. The goal is to have my studio built & ready to use in the next two years. I'm hoping to save for half of it this year & the other half next. 

I'm also putting together a portfolio to send off to some galleries so that I can possibly line up some shows over the next few years. Most times there is a waiting list & that is fine with me. It will give me a chance to get a better body of work together. I plan on posting pictures of the finished quilts over the next few days. In each post I'll share the art that inspired them. So excited to finally be able to post about this!
