Fine Art of Fiber 2009

Here are a few of my favorites from the Fine Art of Fiber show at the Chicago Botanic Garden this past weekend. It is a guild show for a few Chicago area guilds...sadly I did not get all the info on which guilds. It was also a beautiful 70 degree day in November, and I was so glad to get to spend it at a huge garden/park and not in the middle of the city.

I am not really currently sewing much, except for a bit of hand quilting here and there. I am on the hunt for an apartment, and ones with potential dedicated sewing space get high marks. I think it's going to be a little while yet before the apartment is rented and the sewing space set up. Little by little! Thanks again to everyone for the well wishes on my new job. Things are going well so far. I have tons to learn, but I am enjoying it.
