Sewing on Paper

I've been sewing a lot on paper lately. In early June, I sent off a submission to Sew Somerset and once again crossed my fingers. I was sewing on all kinds of different papers and objects made of paper. Paper to fabric, paper to paper, paper to all sorts of things. That is all I can tell you besides a clue that gives away just a little part of it below. I took photos, but I am saving them until later to publish here, because I got a little email today that in part read as follows, and I want to keep the rest a surprise:


Congratulations! The following submission has been selected to be featured as a technique-based article in Sew Somerset which will hit newsstands December 1, 2010:
Cards, Notebooks & Idea folder

In some cases, we may need to move an article to ensure that there is enough room to show artwork at its best, or possibly even reconsider an article for a future issue. If your article is moved, you will be notified.

Best regards,

I will have a few of my sewing on paper projects for sale at the Art Unraveled Shopping Extravaganza right around the corner. I am just about done with everything I need to do to be able to teach my classes and sell journals, fabrics, sewn paper projects, charms, and a variety of other things, as well attend a few classes.
Working on submission ideas, deadlines and getting ready for Art Unraveled have pretty much taken all of my studio time this summer, but I have a friend flying in from MA a few days early, and together we are gonna play the rest of my summer away until AU and the regular day job kick in. I'm looking forward to this little art break.
