where to begin . . .
|Dress of Poetry on display at Attleboro Public Library|
today I am heading to Attleboro to start the install of the Birds of Poetry!! I have two wonderful assistants with me and we are going to primp the birds, get them already for flight then, if TIME allows, launch them into the atrium.

I also plan to stop by the Attleboro Arts Museum to see the exhibit On the Threshold – A National Juried Exhibition (July 14 – August 10, 2012). I was hoping to make it to the opening last Wednesday but nasty thunderstorms and flash flooding put an end to that idea. But will make there today to see the show.

I will also be selling my dresscards ( need to make that money thing :) Here are some samples I made for JP Knit - with the paper for the dresses based on fiber arts and knitting.
