The question = did I make an exhibition of myself = love to hear what you think ...

The gallery space is gorgeous ...
natural light ...
enticing and perfect to present ...
the story of my creative journey...
of how I maintained my love ...

By bringing fabularity to the fore ...
using locally found, recycled, repurposed ...  
fabric, fibres, embellishments.

 Making art glass candle stands ...
with discarded vintage crystal & depression glass ...
scrounged from a myriad of sources since 2003.
Mens neck ties kimono wall hannging ...
 
an applique doiley that became a bag ...
hand dyed, embroidered, embellished for My ...
Turning 25 one legged jeans salvaged from Reverse Garbage ...
working the waist bands into a unique wall hanging ...
"Waisted Waste."
Earrings that became an art quilt ...
hand dyed, with delicate embroidery embellished with seed pearls
Kaffe cottons and antique crochet edging from New York ...
 recognise any of these ...  
has to be 'Fanta' for sure ...
 splashes of colour!
Vintage glass candle holders ...
holding gorgeous candles from Stacks of Wax ... 
Nana's beautiful vases  ...
upturned 70s meets 40s ...
a new use for compote's ...
a tempting selection ...
of what was a collection.
Then ...
these were "Theraputic" ...
sliced lengths of denim ...
from those one legged jean.

What do you call one leg of jeans ... is it a jean?

Yes the spelling is wrong ...
but so was life when I got to these ..
the hems of those one legged denims ...
trimmed ...
sewn as a chain ...
entitled ...
"Are we there Yet' ...
dedicated to all that I kept thinking!

Hope you enjoyed a glimpse ...
there's more but that's all for now folks!!! 

So did do it ?

What a wonderful way with words and 'repurposed' whatevers! The neck tie kimono wall hanging and the waisted jeans wall hanging are wonderful!
