Matthew and I had such a wonderful time in Turkey, we didn't want to leave! Istanbul was fantastically vibrant and Cappadochia was one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. I loved the tile work in Topkopi Palace and the dress styles of some of the elder Turkish men and women were simple yet rich in pattern...I loved them! We went in a hot air balloon and explored Goreme with our new French friends, Sophie and Florian. Above is a photograph of the spice bazarre. I will post more pictures there are many to sort through.

Tiny Toadstool Goods

A friend turned me on to the work of Japanese artist, Shan Shan. Her collection of finely felted and embroidered soft objects are a new favorite of mine. Visit her Tiny Toadstool shop.

New Dolls

Here are two new double-sided embroidered dolls I just finished. Please excuse these poor photographs, I took them myself. I will have some better photographs soon!

More Chicago times..

Here is a picture of Rowley & Michelle's home, the very sweet couple we stayed with in Chicago. Their home was very simple and it seemed as though everything in their space was chosen with care.
