Monday, February 21, 2011 better be paying attention!

Yeah, that means you...You had just better be paying attention! Valerie Weberpal is at the top of her game, on the mark, so right on; In short, her work is getting better, and better and I am just about over the top, smitten - nay obsessed with her work more than ever...

Valerie does incredible things with fabric and needle. Her creations are beautifully textured and layered with festive abandon, yet impeccable stitched. OOOHHH AHHHH...

I adore the pillow-like soft dolls she creates from found and recycled, re-purposed and new textiles, all trimmed with a flourish of festive appointments from buttons and bows, to swirls of colorful ribbon or dashes of unexpected texture and color.

Valerie is from Illinois where she lives with her family on a working farm. On her days away from the Harvest Moon studio she has found my dream job – she works in a gourmet candy shop….YUMMY! There, she hand-dips chocolates and makes candies as yummy as her work…but I digress.

I hope you can encounter her work or meet her soon...Catch her work at our upcoming event in Sanford, FL on 3/4 & 3/5 AND catch the artist yourself this coming May at our event on 5/21 & 5/22 in Saratoga Springs, NY...details for the events are on the events page of our site.

I love everything about Valerie and her work...Val, you are a gem! And I am thrilled to work with can read her at her blog...or log onto her page on our site and see what all my fuss is about... me if you want a sneak peek of the latest arrivals that are not yet posted to her page...
