Ana's Artwork

Ana Petrova and her artwork, Off Rose Gallery
On Sunday, Rhoda and I went to the Off Rose Art Gallery in Venice. Our friend and fellow-fiber artist, Ana Petrova was part of a group show, called "Fired Up." The gallery is hidden behind a house. We walked down the pathway to a beautiful, lush, tropical garden. The garden was filled with people, music, food and art. The official gallery is at the back of the property. It was a wonderful group show. Of course, Ana's felted artwork was the highlight for me. Ana is a very gifted artist. She has added acrylic paint to parts of her felted pieces. They are absolutely gorgeous!

We saw some friends from Stitches From The Heart at the opening, including SFTH founder, Kathy Silverton, Brandi Dailey, Carolyn McCarthy and Joan Whitten. Music was provided by an old friend of mine, Fred Sokolow as well as by some of his students. It was a gala event!

Hi Ellen,
I love your scarves with the circles. What pattern did you use and how did you intertwine them. I'd love to make one.

Hi Lynda,
I call my "scarf with the circles" the FANtastic scarf. It's actually a bookmark pattern, I just used worsted weight yarn and a size "I" crochet hook for this pattern. You can find the pattern here:
