Small Study with Big Design

Small Study 6" x 6"
cotton, silk, wild apple wood
Our latest small study....Ta Da!  The inside scoop, it is challenging to work this small.  Challenging in the fine motor skills department and challenging to make something this small have impact in the design department.  The wild apple wood came from our property.  Wayne was the lumberjack (all the Monty Python fans will begin humming now) he produced the lumber from the tree, the frame from the lumber.  Pam designed and stitched the quilt.  This little framed quilt will be available at Artistree Gallery Cooperative.  While we are talking small, our small business is a cooperative. Customers enjoy meeting the artists when they come to the gallery, and they are meeting the business owners.  The artists are the business owners.  Artistree Gallery Cooperative will hold the Holiday Open House on Saturday November 29, which happens to be Small Business Saturday.  Shop small, and support a small business in your community.
