What Happening in the Studio

Embroidered Tree- in progress
This is what I've been working on lately, among other things. I like mixing embroidery with paint on canvas. It's progressing REALLY slowly, though. I've been experimenting a lot with other things in the studio, so when I get restless with this, I try my hand at something else.

I'm feeling a mixture of excitement and frustration with my work. There is so much I want to do yet everything is moving at a snail's pace and not always to my satisfaction. My sewing machine has been in the shop for a couple of weeks and I can't complete a few projects. I'm wondering if I should just buy a whole other machine. But then I get completely confused about what to get when I research the machines.

Hopefully, I don't run out of this crewel thread. I have only one skein and this brand is discontinued. I tried to find more online, but the companies do not answer my emails and they do not pick up the phone. What kind of business is that?

Anyways, maybe I can finish this this week and make some more progress with my other pieces.

Updating My Site

Fresh Growth
The above is part of the Warm Fuzzies series, which was completed a couple of years ago. I was only able to photograph it recently because it is heavy and behind plexiglass, both of which presents problems for hanging and photographing. 
This one along with two others are up on my site.
