Sandhill Cranes ... on silk

I know you've been wondering if I had any time to shop at the Bad Girls show over the weekend. Yes and no. I really didn't have time to do any serious shopping (what a shame, I know), but I did have time to make a purchase.

On our way back from a brief vacation in Homer last summer, we stopped at the Dragonfly Gallery in Soldotna, owned by my dear friend Chelline Larsen. Rick and I both fell in love with this pair of sandhill cranes. Chelline painted them on silk and also did the quilting.

At the time, I told Chelline that if they had not sold by the time of the Bad Girls show in Anchorage, that I wanted to buy them. And I did just that.


Aren't they beautiful? This photo shows some of the quilting detail.

Hooray for you and Rick! Chelline had such lovely work at the Show and her booth simply glowed! I wanted to get another of her cast leaves this year but didn't see them :o(
