While we were in New Mexico recently, we took a day trip to Taos, my favorite little New Mexican town.  While there I made a great purchase of a piece of fabric art by artist Mary K. Lyon.  I had seen her work in 2011 when in Taos at the Las Comadres Gallery but didn’t have the extra cash at that time to buy anything.  Las Comadres is a women owned co-op gallery.

Because I couldn't get a good photograph I had to scan it on my printer.  It is still a little blurry but much better than the photo.

The frame is 8” X 8”, but the block is only 5” X 5” featuring intricately folded then sewn batik fabrics.  Those folds are TINY!   I’m so glad I now own one of her pieces of fabric art.

Also, while we were in Old Town Albuquerque, I found this darling cat t-shirt that had to come home with me.  The semi-native American markings and the color really caught my eye.

He seems, however, to have the same grouchy expression in his face that my cat usually does.

  1. Thank you for the link to the Las Comadres Gallery. Thank you as well for all of the photos. It would be hard to pass up an adorable grouchy cat t-shirt like that one. It seems like almost all cats have the ability to make that disinterested, or almost pretentious, look.
